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 become a District of Innovation, a school district must adopt an innovation plan, as set forth in Texas Education Code chapter 12A.
Tuloso-Midway ISD has chosen to pursue this opportunity for flexibility to create new opportunities that better serve our students by taking advantage of the following exemptions:
State Certification Requirements for Teachers and Other Educators
Teacher Probationary Contracts
Designation of Campus Behavior Coordinator
Minimum Attendance for Class Credit or Final Grade
Class Size and Student/Teacher Ratio
Inter-district Student Transfers
