Gold-Burg Independent School District approved implementation of the new District of Innovation Plan during its Monday night meeting.
Stemming from House Bill 1842 passed during the 84th Legislative Session, Gold-Burg will gain more local control in several areas outlined in the plan.
Superintendent Roger Ellis said the DOI addressed educator certification and teacher contracts for example allowing for a longer probationary contract for some teachers, setting a different first day of school, transfer students can be released if they don’t keep up their grades and the length of the school day.
The district also has submitted updates to the safety program and emergency operations plans, which will be submitted to the Texas Association of School Boards for review. The policy addresses the arming of staff members in the district, which has been in operation the last two and half years at Gold-Burg.
