District of Innovation Plan
Van ISD is utilizing HB 1842, of the 84th Legislative Session, in order to have more local control in certain areas. HB 1842 allows a traditional public school to have some of the same local flexibility that public charter schools have always been allowed. We feel this is a great opportunity for our local district to tailor plans based on the needs of our students and community.
Van ISD developed a plan to become a District of Innovation and was approved by the Board of Trustees in June 2016. The plan is subject to be revised|renewed every five years. The committee met to update the original plan and on February 22, 2021, the Van ISD Board of Trustees approved the renewal of the District of Innovation Plan for an additional five years. This plan will be in effect for the 2021-2022 school year through the 2025-2026 school year. This plan may be amended at any time by the committee with approval of the Board of Trustees.
