District of Innovation
The 84th Texas Legislature approved a concept known as District of Innovation (DOI) which allows traditional independent school districts most of the flexibilities available to open enrollment charter schools, including exemption from certain requirements mandated in the Texas Education Code.
Keller ISD's Board of Trustees passed a resolution on March 8, 2016, initiating the process of exploring and considering District of Innovation designation for KISD.
Over the following months and summer, District administrators assembled a committee composed of teachers, parents, local business and community members, and representatives from local civic organizations and educational institutions. This committee worked over several months to develop a Local Innovation Plan which was approved by the Keller ISD Board of Trustees in February 2017.
The District of Innovation Committee meets annually to discuss progress and identify future possibilities to benefit our Keller ISD students.
