District of Innovation
The District of Innovation concept was passed into law during the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842, allowing eligible Texas public school districts to obtain exemptions from certain provisions of the Texas Education Code. The law allows traditional independent school districts to access most flexibilities available to Texas’ open enrollment charter schools. To access these flexibilities, and obtain exemptions, the district must create a Local Innovation Plan.
The District of Innovation Plan provided below was approved by the Midland ISD School Board on February 12, 2018. The Midland ISD District of Innovation plan has a term of up to five years beginning at the start of 2018-19 school year and terminate at the end of the 2022-23 school year.
