Bryan school district may seek District of Innovation tag
Elizabeth Kamenicky | The Eagle
In an effort to gain more flexibility in its decision-making process, the Bryan school district is looking into becoming a District of Innovation.
The status, which was passed into law by the 84th legislation in spring 2015, allows districts who meet state performance standards to be exempt from various state mandates and have more local control.
"It's exciting that the state provides us this opportunity of flexibility to make decisions for Bryan students by Bryan constituents," Bryan schools interim Superintendent Timothy Rocka said. "Our own community members and our own board will have the ability to make key decisions for Bryan students. We're looking forward to having that local flexibility."
