Red Oak ISD Community Advisory Council
What is the Red Oak ISD Community Advisory Council (ROCAC)?
The Red Oak ISD Community Advisory Council is a group of approximately 40 interested individuals who meet 9-10 times per year to be a sounding board for the Superintendent on educational plans, goals, performance objectives, and major classroom instructional programs and offer insight into community perceptions.
Who is on the Council?
The ROCAC is made up of parents of students enrolled in the district, business leaders, realtors, clergy, elected officials, district staff, and community members.
What is the role of the Council?
The ROCAC is strictly advisory. Other matters that come before the Council include the district’s budget, the school calendar, plans for new developments and any new educational programs and initiatives. The Superintendent regularly consults with the ROCAC regarding matters about curriculum, new programs and initiatives, and progress toward achieving educational goals. Meetings are open to the public.
Why serve on the Council?
The ROCAC is made up of interested and involved individuals, and long-lasting relationships often develop among the members. The Superintendent and other top administrators are often at the meetings, and members can interact with them. Council members learn about the vital functions of the school district and have an opportunity to help in shaping the district’s educational programs.
When does the Council meet?
Meetings will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Red Oak ISD Education Service Center (Administration Building), in Conference Rm. C at 109 W. Red Oak Road. Meetings are on Mondays and last about 1½ hours.
