The 84th Legislature passed House Bill 1842, which allowed traditional independent school districts the ability to access flexibilities, which had previously been reserved for Texas' open enrollment charter schools.  In order for an independent school district to obtain these flexibilities, districts must seek designation as a "District of Innovation". The Royal Independent School District would like to take this opportunity to improve student outcomes by innovating in the areas of:

  • Teacher Contracts
  • Instructional Calendar
  • Attendance for credit or final grade

The RISD Trustees signed a resolution on December 18, 2018 to formally announce our intentions to become a District of Innovation and the RISD DOI Plan was approved on April 8, 2019.  Information and documentation is provided through the links under the District of Innovation tab.
