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. 

We invite you to explore our transformation to a learning organization where we have developed the capacity to install systemic innovations.  Our shared commitment is evident in the work of our Board of Trustees, our District Design team or "think tank", Campus Design teams, District and Campus Educational Improvement Councils, and our District of Innovation team.  We hope you take a moment to read about our journey through meeting minutes and watch our progress through continued postings on this webpage.
