Additionally, Frenship ISD is currently pursuing a District of Innovation designation with the state of Texas.
House Bill 1842 (84th Session of the Texas Legislature) in part amended Chapter 12 of the Texas Education Code (TEC) to create Districts of Innovation. Districts are eligible for designation if certain performance requirements are met and the district follows certain procedures for adoption as outlined in Statute. The designation provides the district will be exempt from certain sections of the TEC that inhibit the goals of the district as outlined in the locally adopted Innovation Plan.
Currently, Texas Education Code 25.0811 and Board Policy EB (legal) state a district may not begin instruction for students for a school year before the fourth Monday in August. However, if a school district is approved as a District of Innovation, the district obtains flexibility in certain local school matters including selecting the first day of school in August
