1. What is the Facilities Planning Committee?
A group of community members that have come together to evaluate the district’s aging and evolving facility needs in order to provide facility and equipment recommendations to White Oak ISD Board of Trustees in creating and maintaining learning environments that provide all students with great opportunities for success.
2. Why is WOISD forming a Facilities Planning Committee?
The district wants input in evaluating its facility needs and by forming a Committee it allows the district to hear from and incorporate many different perspectives from people in the community. Committee participants reflect larger community values, needs, and desires.
3. Are only WOISD staff on the committee?
No. The Facilities Planning Committee represents a diverse demographic makeup of White Oak ISD residents, including local civic and business leaders, parents, as well as school staff working alongside one another to prioritize and build a recommendation to the Board of Trustees that best represents the values and perceptions of the entire community.
4. What documents and data does the committee review to determine the needs of the school district?
The Committee will study a district-wide facilities assessment, financial data, results from departmental long range planning discussions, and results of a community survey, in order to form their recommendation. WOISD will make any other relevant data or requested data available to the committee that should aid them in their decision-making.
