District of Innovation

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 the Texas Education Code chapter 12A. (TASB)

Sweeny ISD board voted December 16, 2016 at an Open Board meeting to pursue this opportunity for flexibility to create new opportunities to better serve our students. On this page, you will find more information about becoming a District of Innovation.  Please continue to check this page for information and updates regarding Sweeny ISD’s pursuit to become a District of Innovation.



Thank you,
