District of Innovation Plan

The following is provided as a reference from the Texas Education Agency (TEA); at this time Rochelle ISD is not a District of Innovation.

H.B. 1842 (84th Session of the Texas Legislature) in part amended Chapter 12 of the Texas Education Code (TEC) to create Districts of Innovations. Districts are eligible for designation if certain performance requirements are met and the district follows certain procedures for adoption as outlined in Statute. The designation provides the district will be exempt from certain sections of the TEC that inhibit the goals of the district as outlined in the locally adopted Innovation Plan. The term of the designation as a district of innovation may not exceed 5 years.

Additional information regarding Districts of Innovation, the process and timeline for becoming a District of Innovation, and other references can be found on the TEA website.
