Lone Oak Independent School District is a public school district based in Lone Oak, Texas USA. Located in Hunt County, a small portion of the district extends into Rains County. It covers 98 square miles.[1]

The district is managed by a seven-strong board. The superintendent is Lance Campbell.[2] The district educates around 860 students, in four schools, and employs approximately 65 teachers.[3]

Standard & Poor's rated its general obligation debt as 'A'. They described the financial position as "consistently strong" in view of state support for its operations.[4]

The district was the subject of a Supreme Court of Texas case in July 1974. A student challenged a school regulation that prohibits married students from participating in extra-curricular activities. The court decided that this was a matter for the district's board to decide on the policy. This was upheld on appeal.[5]

In 2009, the school district was rated "recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[6]
