District of Innovation

  • House Bill (HB) 1842, passed during the 84th Legislative Session, permits Texas public school districts to become Districts of Innovation and to obtain exemption from certain provisions of the Texas Education Code. On November 13, 2017 the Board of Trustees approved the recommendation by the Professional Learning Executive Committee (PLEC) to become a District of Innovation. One of the exemptions presented by the committee allowed for the flexibility of a start date before the fourth Monday in August, as currently required in the Texas Education Code. This flexibility allows the district to determine locally, on an annual basis, what best meets the needs of the students, parents, and our local community.
