Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    The Dripping Springs Education Foundation supports the Dripping Springs Independent School District to inspire and elevate the academic experience of each student in our district and to prepare them for the demands of the 21st century world.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    We achieve our goals through Innovative Teaching Grants, Student Leadership Grants, and the DSISD grant.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We have committees to evaluate and determine the best Innovative Teaching Grants and Student Leadership Grants to meet our district's needs. District Curriculum and Technology directors participate in the process. The DSISD grant is sum of money given to the district at the end of the year; the DSEF Board discusses current initiatives that align with the Foundation's mission with the DSISD Superintendent to determine how this grant will be designated.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Recipients of both Innovative Teaching Grants and Student Leadership Grants are required to submit mid-year reports on the progress/result of their grant.
    The Board discusses the impact of the DSISD grant in meetings with the Superintendent.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    The Dripping Springs Education Foundation has experienced significant growth in the past few years, last year gifting an unprecedented $100,000 to DSISD and we anticipate duplicating that success in the 2013-2014 school year. We hope to continue to raise our profile in the Dripping Springs community and strengthen donor relationships in order to significantly increase funds raised in future years.
