The importance of community partnerships is highlighted in the "Village" goal of the 2016-21 Strategic Plan. Dripping Springs ISD values the relationships the district has formed with local businesses and community entities. Some opportunities for sponsorships and advertising exist at the district level, and many more are available from schools, PTAs, and middle/high school booster clubs.
Below is a summary of marketing opportunities available for business partners at the district level.
STADIUM SCOREBOARDS: Opportunities for signage advertising exists at the new Tiger Stadium, as well as at the Dripping Springs Middle School Stadium. The district is also exploring the possibility of a video display at Tiger Stadium, where the scoreboard was constructed so that a display board can be added. This project will be given the green light if enough businesses commit to sponsorships to cover the cost.
Scoreboard Sponsorship Opportunities
SCHOOL CALENDAR SPONSOR: The annual school calendar previously has only been posted on the district website for parents to print and use. The district proposes addition of two business sponsors to split the cost of printing a four-color calendar for distribution to all parents. The sponsors’ logos will appear on the front of the calendar (2.5”x1.5”), for both printed and online versions. (no longer available 2017)
NEW TIGER GUIDE SPONSOR: The district has created a four-page booklet that is provided to families who move to Dripping Springs ISD during the school year (it is also available online). Two business sponsors will allow the guide to be professionally printed, and also given to families who are new to the district at the start of the school year. DSISD’s projected growth is approximately 5 percent a year, which equals about 200 students per year. The sponsor’s logo will be displayed on both the printed and online versions. (no longer available 2017)
“EMPLOYEE REACH” PACKAGE: For those businesses or organizations that would like to access and communicate with Dripping Springs ISD’s 800 employees, an “Employee Reach” package has been developed. The business partner would be included in one e-mail blast, be permitted to distribute one printed item (provided by partner), display a poster in teacher lounges (up to 11x17) for one month, and be included on a running list of partners/discounts displayed on the employee section of the website. This opportunity will be available August through May, and, to maximize impact, no more than two will be accepted per month.
All advertising will be subject to District approval guidelines.
