The bill allows an innovation school zone (innovation zone) to use
an alternative governance structure by which the school district board of
education (local school board) delegates management of schools within
the innovation zone to another organization and the organization forms
a partnership with the local school board. An innovation zone is required
to submit information regarding the alternative governance structure in

the innovation zone's innovation plan to the local school board.
The bill requires that the local school board and an innovation
zone that has an alternative governance structure, or a school within the
innovation zone, use a dispute resolution process to resolve disagreements
that may arise. The bill outlines the dispute resolution process.
The bill requires a local school board to review the level of
performance of an innovation zone that uses alternative governance, and
each school within the innovation zone, at the same time.
