District of Innovation
The Spring Independent School District Board of Trustees approved a resolution Feb. 14 during its regularly scheduled board meeting to initiate the process of becoming a District of Innovation. With this status, Spring ISD will be able to further personalize how instruction is delivered to students.
Established by the 84th Texas Legislature, the District of Innovation distinction gives traditional independent school districts in Texas access to many of the flexibilities offered to Texas’ open enrollment charter schools.
With the Board’s approval, a 20-member District of Innovation (DOI) committee – including parents, teachers, business and community members, school administrators, district leadership and trustees – developed Spring ISD’s innovation plan to further the implementation of the five-year strategic plan, EVERY CHILD 2020.
The Board approved and adopted the district’s Local District of Innovation Plan at the April 11 regular meeting. The action followed an extensive process that began in January and included the establishment of a local planning committee to develop the plan along with a month-long period for gathering community input and feedback.
