District of Innovation

What is a District of Innovation?

House Bill 1842, from the 84th Legislature, allows school districts to seek District of Innovation status to be exempt from a variety of state requirements. Ultimately, this designation affords La Porte ISD more local control so that we can better serve our stakeholders.

District of Innovation plans must be renewed every five years, and La Porte ISD's District of Innovation renewal plan was approved by the Board of Trustees on April 5, 2022 at its regular meeting. 

District of Innovation Plan - 2022-27

The district will update all policy changes with the Texas Association of School Boards and La Porte ISD Board of Trustees. The District of Innovation designation will last for five calendar years. It may be amended by the District Educational Improvement Council (DEIC) and Board of Trustees, and it may be renewed within six months of the plan's expiration.
