District in 30 Day Posting and Feedback Period for New District of Innovation (DOI) Plan

HB 1842 (2015) created the law that allows for the designation of Districts of Innovation (DOI). The law can be found in Chapter 12A of the Texas Education Code (TEC). This chapter provides that a traditional school district that is rated acceptable or better may create a district-level innovation plan, potentially including exemptions from the vast majority of the TEC, which constitutes the state’s regulatory framework and statutory safety net for public schools.

To review the DOI planning process and information and final recommended eight exemptions, please "click" on this News Story. The 30 day posting and feedback period will last until Friday, February 10, 2023. For additional information or questions, please call David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.
