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 Texas Education Code chapter 12A.
On November 5, 2018, the Board adopted the current District of Innovation Plan.
The proposed Hawkins ISD Renewal Innovation Plan will be posted on the district’s website for public review for 30 days as required by the Texas Education Agency.
On June 27, 2022, the Board approved the District of Innovation Resolution to consider the renewal of the designation of a District of Innovation. If approved, the plan will be in place from June 2022 to June 2027.
