  • Plan to Become a district of Innovation by Exempting the District from the Uniform School Start Date (TEC Sec. 25.0811)

  • The purpose of the exemption was to allow flexibility to consider starting school earlier in August, and end the school year prior to Memorial Day in May.

  • The exemption is granted for five years, after which to renew the exemption Districts are required to repeat the adoption process outlined in meeting a District of Innovation.
