 Allen ISD: Where Eagles Soar
 District of Innovation
A district of innovation is a concept passed by the 84th Legislature in House Bill 1842, effective immediately. The law allows traditional independent school districts most of the flexibilities available to Texas' open enrollment charter schools. To access these flexibilities, a school district must adopt an innovation plan as set for in the Texas Education Code chapter 12A.
