The Optional Flexible School Day Program (OFSDP) allows districts to provide flexible hours and days of attendance for students who meet at least one of the requirements of the Texas Education Code §29.0822(a). The goal of the program is to improve graduation rates for students who are in danger of dropping out of school, have dropped out, or are behind in core subject courses.
Laws and Rules
Districts must submit an annual application notifying the Texas Education Agency of their plans to participate in the OFSDP. The application requires the following information:
