Local Innovation Plan

In an effort to ensure the ongoing engagement of stakeholders within Frisco ISD, the District has reevaluated the structure of the District of Innovation Committee and other district-wide committees. As a result of that review, Frisco ISD is reformatting the District Advisory Council to serve as the state-required district level planning committee that will develop, evaluate and revise the district improvement plan and consider and vote on the final version of the District’s proposed Local Innovation Plan.

Frisco ISD became a District of Innovation on February 13, 2017, following Board adoption of a Local Innovation Plan. The plan was developed by a committee of parents, staff and community members in November 2016 and was approved by the District Improvement Team in February 2017. The plan was renewed by the Board on January 11, 2022. Amendments are approved by the Board and added to the plan each year.

About the District of Innovation

The District of Innovation concept was passed into law by the 84th Legislature (2015) through House Bill 1842, which was codified in Texas Education Code Chapter 12A. The designation allows school districts to access many of the same options that are currently available to charter schools.

Despite its name, this designation does not allow FISD to be overly innovative or to make changes in areas related to curriculum, graduation requirements, governance, academic and financial accountability and much more. For more information about Districts of Innovation, see information from the Texas Education Agency and the Texas Association of School Boards.
