What is a "District of Innovation"?

The District of Innovation concept was passed by the 84th Texas legislature in House Bill 1842 and codified in Texas Education Code, Chapter 12A.  A District of Innovation designation gives traditional school districts more flexibility and local control and increases a district’s ability to decide what best meets the unique needs of the students and to customize a response to those needs.
