The Red Oak ISD Board of Trustees met for its regular meeting to approve over half a million dollars in instructional materials and also presented finalized changes to the proof of residency requirements.

The trustees have seen several adaptations in the proof of residency document all school year and presented the finalized list of requirements.

The district requires a resident residing within the attendance zone to provide at least one of five forms of documentation. Applications for students and family living with a ROISD resident are available as well as for residing with a grandparent.

If a student is living apart from its parent/legal guardian, then an application would be completed annually with a power of attorney.

The residency requirement form also includes information for returning students procedures and penalties for submitting false information.

New student online enrollment opened for all students in prekindergarten through 12th grade on April 9.

The board of trustees approved the proclamation for the 2019 state textbook adoption that will include the purchase of $897,814.47 worth of instructional materials.

These supplies will serve English language arts and reading in grades kindergarten through eighth, Spanish language arts and reading in kindergarten through fifth.

In other business, the board approved the resolution in support of the Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program in Ellis County.

Board president John Hawkins stated that all trustees have met or exceeded the required amount of training for trustees with Eric Thompson with the most at 26 hours.

The meeting officially adjourned at 8:12 p.m.
