News & Announcements
In their most recent session, the Texas legislature passed House Bill 1842. HB 1842 allows school districts an opportunity to level the playing field by filing to become a District of Innovation, and detailing sections of the Texas Education Code that are inhibiting innovation in schools.
The HEB ISD School Board created a committee of staff, students, and community leaders who have met throughout the fall semester to evaluate the option of filing to become a District of Innovation. Based on that committee's work, an innovation plan has been created and is now available to be downloaded.
Common questions about this process and the advantages it can offer are addressed in our FAQ on the same website. If you have any additional questions, please email Tanya Hassell at firstname.lastname@example.org
