The Hot Springs Public Schools Education Foundation (HSPSEF) was begun in 2017. With great partnership from the district and generous support from alumni across the central Arkansas area, they have made wonderful progress in identifying specific ways to enhance district initiatives. The group is focused on growing support for the Foundation, and spreading the word to all alumni and partners about how to get active in supporting the HSSD. 

Through the first ever HSSD Enrichment Grants, the Foundation is directly supporting the initiatives of Hot Springs educators and helping to enhance the programs that students care about. The grant application period was open from May – August. The HSPSEF Foundation Board selected the following HSSD projects and programs as the first ever Enrichment Grant recipients, and awarded each with funds at the HSSD October Board Meeting last night:
