Optional Flexible School Day Program (OFSDP)

The OFSDP is a program that districts may offer to provide flexible hours and days of attendance for students in any grade who have dropped out of school, are at risk of dropping out, are participating in an approved early college high school plan, or are attending a campus implementing an innovative redesign under a plan approved by the commissioner of education.

The program is also for students who will be denied credit for one or more classes in which they have been enrolled as a result of attendance requirements under the Texas Education Code, §25.092.

The goal of the program is to improve graduation rates for students who are in danger of dropping out of school or have dropped out or who are behind in core subject courses.

Application Information 

To participate in the OFSDP, your district must submit an annual application notifying the Texas Education Agency (TEA) that it plans to participate. The application requires the following information: implementation plan description, staff plans, schedules, and student attendance accounting security procedures and documentation. The TEA will notify each applicant of its approval status to operate an OFSDP.

Note: Applications no longer need to be submitted 90 days before the program's start date.
