Strategic Planning & Innovation

During the last few months, you've been invited to 'dream with us' as we've launched a strategic planning process and investigate the Districts of Innovation opportunity made possible by House Bill 1842 (HB 1842) passed during the last legislative session.


Provided here is an update on what we've heard and where we are in the process of investigating HB 1842 and developing a new strategic plan to shape the future of education in classrooms and schools in Spring Branch. We hope you stay engaged as the work continues!

The Opportunity: Districts of Innovation (HB 1842)

"Everyone that has ever done anything significant first found themselves in the place where the status quo no longer was enough.”

Passage of HB 1842 by the 84th State Legislature created a mechanism for school districts to think differently with more freedom and flexibility.


HB 1842 creates a new classification of public school districts, Districts of Innovation, and provides a level of local autonomy and the ability to waive some statutory requirements.
