Teaching Enrichment Request Form (TERF)
HP Arts funds requests from teachers at all HPISD campuses for programming and capital projects in art, band, choir, dance, debate, literary arts, orchestra, theatre, and arts integration programs in non-fine arts classes. Types of requests include arts programs, technology, equipment, and instruments – any arts enrichment programs or arts-related equipment used as a teaching tool in the classroom. HPISD teachers are invited to submit Teaching Enrichment Request Forms (TERFs) to request funds using the online form below.

Last year, HP Arts funded more than $50,000 in arts projects benefiting HPISD. Programs included workshops led by outside experts, visiting authors, debate training as well as new band and orchestra instruments. Funds distributed are received from two primary sources – our cornerstone benefactor, La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas, and from family contributions during Back-to-School Sign-Up.
