This approval by the School Board signified the last step to become a District of Innovation (DOI). The DOI concept allows traditional independent school districts to access most of the flexibilities available to Texas’ open enrollment charter schools. This allows Burnet CISD the opportunity to exercise more local control to pursue specific innovations in curriculum, instruction, governance, parent or community involvement, school calendar and budgeting. The District worked with the District Advisory Committee (DAC) comprised of teachers, parents, community members and business members to develop the DOI plan. The adopted DOI Plan took effect on April 4th, and will remain in effect until April 3, 2022.
