After a year like no other, communities have rallied around teachers to show support for their work. Throughout 2020 and into 2021 Teachers juggled being both in-person and virtual educators, which is a challenge. Additionally, they have taken on helping students emotionally cope with a pandemic.
School districts, specifically our educators, play a key role in our communities. Masterplan’s work with school districts, such as our efforts on Dallas ISD’s last 3 bond programs, is vital to ensuring the successful growth of these schools as communities grow. Our firm fully supports the need for education and helps to provide appropriate facilities that allow children to achieve success.
An avid supporter of community education throughout the state of Texas, CEO Dallas Cothrum currently serves as president of the Highland Park Education Foundation. Through major fundraising efforts, the Highland Park Education Foundation was able to raise $1.5 million in donations. The donations were translated into a grant for one-time stipends of $1,400 to all 850 teachers and staff.
We encourage all community members to find ways to support their local school districts. A special thank you to all the educators and staff that are molding the next generation of leaders.
