FSHISD Posts District of Innovation Plan

The District of Innovation concept, passed by Texas Legislature, 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. In our ongoing effort to meet the needs of our students and families, FSHISd has posted a proposed plan to become a District of Innovation.
