Oakwood Independent School District Bond Proposal Passes

Thank you, Oakwood community, for your support. The Oakwood Independent School District bond proposal passed by an overwhelming margin in favor at the May 6, 2017, election. This $550,000 bond will enable the district to purchase three new school buses. In addition, we will complete several small renovation projects at the campuses and the football field.

Welcome To New Superintendent Mr. Donny Lee

The Oakwood Independent School District (OISD) board of trustees has selected Mr. Donny Lee to lead the district as the superintendent of OISD. Mr. Lee will replace Mr. Thomason who is retiring after 36 years in education. He has served the district as interim superintendent for the last four years, and we appreciate all of his hard work, service, and dedication to Oakwood ISD.

Mr. Lee is coming to us from Frankston ISD where he has served as the high school principal for the last three years. He has also worked in Bullard ISD, Pine Tree ISD, and Westwood ISD. Mr. Lee is a nominee for the ESC Region 7 principal of the year award and has recently completed his doctorate from Lamar University. He has eight years of administrative experience. Mr. Lee is moving into the Oakwood community very soon, along with his wife and two daughters that will attend Oakwood schools. Welcome to Oakwood, Mr. Lee. We look forward to a bright future at OISD.

Students of the Month

Each month the Oakwood ISD Site-Based Decision Making Committee selects one student from each campus that has been nominated by his/her teacher for the student of the month. These students are selected based on their academic performance, citizenship, good attitude, and for being a team player. These are all qualities that we aspire for our students. We invite the students the committee selects as students of the month, along with their parents, to the monthly board of trustees meeting where the board recognizes them and gives them a certificate. In addition, their picture is taken with the school superintendent, and we display that picture in their campus hallway for the remainder of the school year. The winners are listed below:

  • September - Elementary, Elena Salguero and JH/HS, Kaeley Bean
