Defined Autonomy

The Houston ISD released the Defined Autonomy Framework (DAF), which is a system designed to allow for flexibility and innovation at high-performing campuses while maintaining rigorous expectations for all schools. 

Bellaire High School is categorized within the framework as a Level 3. 

The linked document outlines the specific autonomies earned by the schools at each level. The greater the achievement and overall performance of a school, the more autonomous the school will be.  The Defined Autonomy presentation that was shared at the Superintendent's Community Meeting is also linked here.
