Long-Range Facility Planning Committee Being Formed

The Long-Range Facilities Planning Committee (LRFPC) will begin meeting in November to plan for the next 5-10 years of student growth in Dripping Springs ISD. The LRFPC serves a critical need for the future of our district, as important decisions are made over the next year to ensure that Dripping Springs ISD continues to serve all students with an outstanding education.

Applications currently are being accepted for membership in the LRFPC.  Those who attended meetings and served in this capacity last year are being invited to apply as well. Committee members will be involved the planning process, and will be expected to commit to attendance at all meetings. In order to create a balanced committee, the membership selection process will consider factors such as role in the district (parent, staff, community) and geographic location of residence.

The current plan for the LRFPC is to meet once each month from November through May – including a second meeting in January – for a total of eight meetings. In addition, there will often be work outside of the meetings in order to make the process effective.  The ultimate goal of the committee is to reach a final consensus regarding future district facilities and to make a presentation to the DSISD Board of Trustees in June, 2020.  

For those members of the community who are interested in this work but unable to attend all meetings, all meetings will be open to the public and anyone will be able to attend and observe.

Those interested in serving as a member of the LRFPC should fill out this Google Form by October 11, 2019.  The first meeting of the LRFPC will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019.
