Dripping Springs ISD is moving toward holding in-person meetings of its board of trustees beginning in April, a year after the coronavirus pandemic caused the board to shift to virtual meetings. The board's last virtual meeting will be held March 29.

To allow for social distancing, meetings will be held in the Dripping Springs High School auditorium rather than inside the DSISD Administration Building.


"I know it may seem like a simple thing to just start meeting in person, but there's a couple of factors at play. We are going to move to a larger space. This space here has always been a little small for the public," Board President Barbara Stroud said at a March 22 meeting.

Meetings will continue to be broadcast via videoconference, Stroud said.

The district will also meet in person at Dripping Springs Methodist Church on five dates across March and April to review applications and interview candidates for the district's superintendent position. Community members who wish to speak about the superintendent search process may do so during public forum at the beginning of these meetings March 27, April 6, April 7, April 9 and April 10.
