Construction on the first set of projects—which includes renovations at Dripping Springs High School and Dripping Springs and Rooster Springs elementary schools—will begin at the conclusion of the 2018-19 school year.


“We have made excellent progress on the design of the high school expansion and renovations to two elementary schools that will start in June,” DSISD Superintendent Bruce Gearing said.  “We have and will continue to gather input from our stakeholders that will help shape project design.”


Over the coming months, the district will work on designs for a new Walnut Springs Elementary School, renovations for Dripping Springs Middle School and construction of the district’s fifth elementary school.
