Fort Bend ISD seeks to renew its District of Innovation designation through the renewal of the Local Innovation Plan. Stakeholder input on the draft of the Local Innovation Plan is open until 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 1, 2022.
 
DISTRICT OF INNOVATION
 
Fort Bend ISD is seeking to renew its District of Innovation (DOI) designation through the renewal of the Local Innovation Plan. The Local Innovation Plan provides the District with greater local control in decision-making to benefit FBISD students and staff. The District of Innovation designation allows Fort Bend ISD the autonomy from specified state requirements within the Texas Education Code in order to invoke innovative solutions on behalf of students and staff.
 
CURRENT LOCAL INNOVATION PLAN
 
The current Local Innovation Plan has been in place since the 2017 – 18 school year and if not renewed, will expire at the end of the 2021 – 22 school year. The Local Innovation Plan must be renewed every five years to maintain a District of Innovation designation.
 
The current Fort Bend ISD Local Innovation Plan provides for flexibility and exemption from the related Texas Education Code sections for the following areas:
 
School Calendar – allows for flexibility in school calendar design such as shifting the start of school prior to the fourth Monday in August
 
Teacher Certification – supports hiring in hard to fill areas (CTE, World Languages, etc.)
 
Minimum Attendance for Class Credit or Final Grade – 90 Percent Rule – allows flexibility for instructional delivery methods including virtual learning models and flexibility to support students unable to attend class due to extenuating circumstances
 
LOCAL INNOVATION RENEWAL PLAN
 
Fort Bend ISD is seeking community input on the Local Innovation Plan. The Local Innovation Plan is open for public comment until 11:59 p.m. on February 1, 2022. Comments can be provided using the survey link below:
