A DOI plan may be renewed at any time during the term of the plan. A district may only have one innovation plan at any given time (19 TAC §102.1311). As such, a renewed plan takes effect only after the term of the district’s current innovation plan expires. In the instance that the district intends for the term of a renewed plan to begin prior to the expiration of its current plan, the renewed plan supersedes the district’s current plan at that time and the current plan is considered void. The district must repeat the adoption process outlined in 19 TAC §102.1207, however 2 specific steps are not required to be repeated (see “Process Requirements” chart on page 2). The term of the DOI plan may be extended for up to an additional 5 years during renewal.
