    About Public School Choice:

    Dallas ISD is on a mission to provide every student with a best-fit school where educators can more meaningfully and deeply engage students by tapping into their specific interests, aspirations, preferred learning styles, and values. The District already offers dozens of high-quality choice options, including Magnet schools, Collegiate Academies, and neighborhood schools, along with 70+ Transformation and Innovation schools created to date.

    Transformation and Innovation schools are designed and selected through the annual Public School Choice (PSC) competitive proposal process. The PSC application invites internal and external teams to submit proposals to become a Transformation or an Innovation School. OTI facilitates the process, including designing the annual proposal, setting key deadlines, reviewing and approving eligible Letters of Intent, conducting proposal development workshops, managing the proposal review and selection rounds, and communicating the announcement of selected teams.
