District of Innovation


A District of Innovation is a concept passed by the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842, effective immediately, that gives traditional independent school districts most of the flexibilities available to Texas' open enrollment charter schools. To access these flexibilities, a school district must adopt an innovation plan, as set forth in Texas Education Code chapter 12A.

The Pewitt CISD Board of Trustees has approved a District of Innovation Plan for Pewitt CISD and this plan has been submitted to the Texas Education Agency. If you have questions regarding this plan, please contact Kristie Jones at kjones@pewittcisd.net or at (903) 884-2136.
