White Oak Independent School District
Leading the way to a future ready education
The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) highlighted notable traffic and criminal laws that went 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.
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

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. For more information on this program, please visit our website and click on the Lunch Money Now link found on our Home Page and the Nutrition and Menus link.
