What is a District of Innovation?
A District of Innovation is a concept passed by the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842, effective immediately, that gives traditional independent school districts most of the flexibilities available to Texas' open-enrollment charter schools. To access these flexibilities, a school district must adopt an innovation plan, as set forth in Texas Education Code chapter 12A.
HB 1842 provides Angleton ISD with the opportunity to design a comprehensive education plan according to the needs and resources of our district while maximizing local control.
See the official Angleton ISD District of Innovation plan here. AISD has requested approval for its District of Innovation plan from Commissioner of Education Mike Morath. Read the letter here.
