How much time does DI take? Students need to commit to an hour or two per week for team meetings. Exactly how long, where and when is up to each individual team.
What should you do if your child in grades 3-12 is interested in DI? First, please read “What is Destination Imagination? (En español)“. Then, download and complete the below registration form and commitment form. Finally, return the completed and signed forms to the campus DI Coordinator (who is also the campus QUEST teacher).
Even though the students have to solve the problem, DI teams need adult volunteers to help with instant challenges, snacks, shuttling kids around, teaching skills the children want to learn, and most of all for team managers and appraisers. The more adults who commit to helping out, the less time intensive it is for everyone, and the more fun DI is for the kids. If you’re interested in helping with a team or being an appraiser for the DI competitions, please contact your Campus DI coordinator or Kathy Wood (Click here to email Kathy Wood). Please note that all DI team managers must be approved through the Leander ISD Volunteer Services. For more information, click here to go to the Leander ISD Volunteer Site.
