Fort Bend ISD’s Local Innovation Plan posted online for public comment
Plan created by committee of teachers, students and community members includes exemptions related to school calendar, teacher certification and “90 percent rule”
- School Calendar
- Teacher Certification
- Minimum Attendance for Class Credit or Final Grade – 90 percent rule
The committee, comprised of students, teachers, principals, administrators and community members began meeting in December to explore ways Fort Bend ISD could use the DOI concept to have more local control in the decision-making process. An external K12 Insight consultant and outside legal counsel facilitated the work of the committee. Together, the Local Innovation Committee developed a Local Innovation Plan, which was approved by the District’s Academic Advisory Council on February 8.
