Under provisions of the Texas education code, every school district is required to develop a district plan to improve student performance. Decatur ISD utilizes a collaborative planning process including community and staff input to develop the district’s education plan. District and campus plans are developed annually to be mutually supportive of the state goals and objectives under Education Code, Chapter 4.
In Decatur ISD, the planning team is known as the District Educational Improvement Council (DEIC) and the plan is known as the District Improvement Plan (DIP). The Board of Trustees for the district oversees the meeting procedures of the District-level planning and decision-making committee and annually approves their plan recommendations.
