LHISD District of Innovation Plan

On May 20, 2024, the LHISD Board of Trustees approved amendments to be added to our current District of Innovation Plan (adopted in May 2022) to provide the district with local control and flexibility which will benefit our students, staff, and community.  Liberty Hill ISD has had a District of Innovation Plan since the 2017-18 school year.

House Bill (HB) 1842, passed during the 84th Legislative Session, permits Texas public school districts to become Districts of Innovation and to obtain an exemption from certain provisions of the Texas Education Code. To qualify, an eligible school district must adopt a five-year innovation plan according to the Texas Education Code. This bill allows traditional public schools to have some of the same local flexibility that public charter schools have always been allowed. This bill also allows school districts to amend their plans at any time during that span of time.

As part of this amendment process, our District Education Improvement Committee (DEIC) met, reviewed our district's innovation plan, and approved the amendments to the plan. Please click on the LHISD District of Innovation Plan for specific details.

We have submitted these amendments to the Commissioner of Education. The amended plan will go into effect for the 2024-25 school year. This current DOI plan will remain in effect through May of 2027.
