Spring 2021 Call for Quality Schools

In VISD, we believe there are no lesser paths, but there are different paths to a successful launch. As one strategy to provide best-fit choice options for students that will give them multiple opportunities of exposure, experience, and pursuit to nurture their passions, VISD is expanding the number of great, best-fit options for students. The process to expand great options for students is to administer a Call for Quality Schools. The Call for Quality Schools is an application process designed for VISD to identify high-capacity partners to create, design, and implement school models in VISD with the goal of providing more best-fit options for students and their families.
