Community and Student Engagement
Texas Education Code §39.0545, as added by House Bill 5, 83rd Texas Legislature, requires all districts to evaluate the district’s performance and the performance of each campus in community and student engagement. All school districts and charters are required to assign a performance rating of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable to the district and each campus for overall performance and the following categories:
• Fine arts
• Wellness and physical education
• Community and parental involvement
• The 21st Century Workforce Development program
• The second language acquisition program
• The digital learning environment
• Dropout prevention strategies
• Educational programs for gifted and talented students

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.
TRS ActiveCare Plans
Information about the TRS ActiveCare Plans is included in the Coverage Tab available on the Aetna website (www.trsactivecareaetna.com). You should review the information carefully and select the plan and coverage that best meets your needs. You may want to access Aetna’s DocFind to review the hospitals, physicians and other providers contracted for each of the TRS-ActiveCare Plans. You can reach both Aetna and Caremark at 1-800-222-9205. Each has a very informative web site you can access for more information. Aetna is listed above and there is a link to Caremark at the bottom of the TRS Aetna website.
Applying for Free/Reduced School Meals is now on-line.
Paper copies of the forms are still available at each campus office as well as at registration. Please access the on-line forms by using the link listed below.
Lunch Money Now Information
PARENTS: You may now choose to make a deposit to your child’s lunch account online by clicking here. Please note that there is a $2.50 convenience charge to add money to your child’s account online. The program will be accepting American Express, Discover and PayPal this school year – in addition to the Visa and Mastercard debit/credit methods we have always had.
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.
