Re: 2008–2009 Optional Flexible School Day Program (OFSDP)

To the Administrator Addressed:

Your school district or charter school may apply for a program to provide a flexible school day to meet the educational needs of your students. The Optional Flexible School Day Program (OFSDP) is a program approved by the commissioner of education to provide flexible hours and days of attendance for students in grades 9–12 who are at risk of not graduating, 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 deadline for participation in the 2008–2009 OFSDP is 90 days before the beginning day of the school year.

If you have questions about the program, please contact Kim Rife by telephone at 512-463-9238 or by email at kim.rife@tea.state.tx.us.

The rules, application, attendance guidelines, and sample attendance registers for the OFSDP can be found at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/school.finance/ofsdp.
