Board of Trustees take preliminary steps to becoming a District of Innovation

On December 13, 2016, the Garland ISD Board of Trustees adopted a resolution to explore becoming a District of Innovation. Becoming a District of Innovation offers public school districts various opportunities for increased flexibility with state statutes in order to better serve students and the community.

The resolution confirms the Board’s commitment to pursuing and following the process outlined in state legislation. After the adoption of a resolution, the next step is to hold a public hearing, which is scheduled for Tuesday, January 10, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. This public hearing is an opportunity for feedback from district stakeholders, which will be essential throughout the process.
