Advisory committee approves WFISD District of Innovation plan

Wichita Falls ISD’s District Advisory Committee approved a District of Innovation Plan for 2022-2027 in a public meeting Thursday.

The District of Innovation program, approved by the Legislature in 2015, allows traditional ISDs flexibility available to the state’s open-enrollment charter schools.

Qualifying school districts can obtain exemptions from some parts of the Texas Education Code, gaining more local control and autonomy.

The plan approved by the District Advisory Committee has exemptions for the school calendar, teacher certification, minimum attendance for credit, campus behavior coordinators, suspension for homeless students and ejecting a parent or community member.
