The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) highlighted notable traffic and criminal laws that go into effect on Sept. 1, 2013.
HB 347 expands the current limitations on wireless communication device (cell phone) use in an active school crossing zone to include the property of a public elementary, middle, or junior high school for which a local authority has designated a school crossing zone. The use will only be restricted during the time a reduced speed limit is in effect for the school crossing zone. Further, it will not apply to vehicles that are stopped, or drivers using a hands-free device or making an emergency call.
This law applies to school pickup/drop off lines as well. For the safety of our children, please do not be on your cell phones while you are driving through the school pickup/drop off lines.

Public Education Grant List
The information contained in this link is meant to help you understand the Public Education Grant list and how White Oak High School was selected. Basically, you can reference the High School Report Card and look at the scores on the four indexes to find your answer. White Oak High School's cumulative score on the four indicators was 44% higher than the "target score" determined by the Texas Education Agency. Since each index stood alone, our score on Index 4 was three points below the target and the District is rated Improvement Required and the High School is rated Academically Unacceptable.

Superintendent's Statement on School Safety
The Board of Trustees for the White Oak Independent School District approved a resolution to join the Equity Center in litigation requiring the state of Texas to fundamentally change the way Texas Public Schools are funded. It is unfortunate, but the Texas Legislature historically is reluctant to change without litigation. The purpose of this legal action is to create a fair/equitable/adequate system of public school finance.

POWER ON TEXAS is a collaboration between TEA and AMS Pictures to highlight teachers effectively using technology to transform student achievement across the state and share these examples with other educational stakeholders. POWER ON TEXAS shows how districts overcame barriers associated with technology transformation, professional development surrounding training, administrative support, best practices with technology transformation and project-based learning as well as rural implications with technology.
White Oak ISD is one of these seven technology best practices school districts in Texas.

Check Acceptance Policy
White Oak Independent School District has established the following policy for accepting checks and collecting returned checks:
For a check to be an acceptable form of payment it must include your full and accurate name, address and telephone number. In the event your check is returned for non-payment, the face value will be recovered electronically along with the state allowed recovery fee. Currently this fee is $30.00 however; it is subject to increases as set by the state of Texas.
An alternative payment method has been established in the Child Nutrition Department. Lunch Money Now allows parents access to their student’s individual accounts via the internet. Using a debit or credit card parents can deposit funds directly into their student’s lunch account, view balances and see what their child is buying for lunch.
