TIGER TALK: Common Legal Issues in Public Schools

TIGER TALKS are a series of seminars, workshops and presentations sponsored by the Dripping Springs ISD Council of PTAs.* The topics vary widely from our first Tiger Talk on vaping to last year's Talk co-sponsored with the Dripping Springs Education Foundation and DSISD Counselors "Parent University" on "The Science of Resilience" and the first of 2021-22, "Understanding the Teen Brain."
