    As Red Oak ISD plans for the 2020-21 school year and a safe return to school on Thursday, August 20, 2020, we know that we must be prepared to provide the excellent education that our community expects. In the midst of the unknowns of COVID-19 and guidance from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) on the requirements to reopen schools this fall, ROISD's top priority has and always will be safety and well-being of our students, families, and staff.

    We are creating plans that will include comprehensive health and safety protocols for all staff and students. In addition, we have worked to create instructional options that meet the needs of our families. These plans include both an in-person traditional and an at-home virtual learning option with asynchronous instruction.

    In both learning models:

    • All students will follow the state curriculum (TEKS) and attendance requirements as well as the ROISD grading policy.
    • All courses will be taught by highly-qualified, certified Red Oak ISD teachers.
    • Additional support for the social/emotional needs of students and staff will be available.
    • All students will participate in district/state assessments to document learning and growth.
    • Students will have the option of changing from-or-to either option during the year at the end of the grading period.


    On Wednesday, July 29, parents listed as Family 1 in Skyward will receive an email from Red Oak ISD asking them to make a commitment for their student(s) to choose either traditional in-person or at-home asynchronous learning for the first six week grading period. In order for ROISD to finalize staffing requirements, we are asking that this commitment be made no later than 8:00 a.m. on Monday, August 3.

    Failure to complete the selection by this deadline will result in a delay in your student’s class schedule and may result in limiting course availability. Once a selection is made, students will be required to remain with their option for the six-week grading period. Students may request to change their option prior to the following six-week period.
