A district of innovation is a concept passed by the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842. Weatherford ISD applied to be a District of Innovation (DOI) and was granted that status in 2017. The DOI designation lasts five years and school district’s must reapply in order to extend the DOI designation. The rationale for the application allows for flexibility in designing the school calendar and flexibility in teacher certification allowing the District to recruit, employ, and retain specialists, particularly in the area of Career & Technical Education.

During the fall semester, members of the District Education Improvement Committee (DEIC) made up of teachers, parents, community members, and District administrators, spent time discussing proposed calendars for the 2022-2023 school year. Based on their feedback, two draft calendars were developed.
Public school calendars must show 187 days for teachers and a minimum of 75,600 instructional minutes for students. Both of the draft calendars meets those requirements.
Please look at the attached draft calendars carefully and vote for the one that you feel best meets the needs of our students, families, and staff. Once we receive the survey data, Weatherford ISD administration will make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
