TRS ActiveCare Memo to Employees
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.

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.
