District of Innovation

MVISD District of Innovation Information Website
A District of Innovation is a concept passed by the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842, effective immediately, that gives traditional school districts most of the flexibilities available to Texas' open enrollment charter schools. 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.

On December 16, 2019, the Medina Valley ISD Board of Trustees appointed a District of Innovation Committee comprised of administrators, board members, teachers, auxiliary staff, parents, and community members. The Committee met on the following dates, to discuss and draft the Local Innovation Plan: February 4, 2020; February 18, 2020; March 5, 2020.
The term of the Plan is for five years, beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, after the Texas Commissioner of Education is notified that the Innovation Plan has been approved by the Board of Trustees and ending at the end of the 2024-2025 school year, unless terminated or amended earlier by the Board of Trustees in accordance with the law. An ad-hoc committee appointed by the MVISD Local District of Innovation Planning Committee will annually review and monitor the effectiveness of the Plan and recommend to the Board any suggested modifications to the Plan.
