The District of Innovation concept, passed by the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842 gives traditional school districts most of the flexibilities available to Texas' open-enrollment charter schools. Potential benefits of becoming a District of Innovation include increased local control, ability to customize plans, and flexibility for a local school district. Brock ISD is excited about the opportunities House Bill 1842 provides and is currently in the process to become a District of Innovation.
