Other information

The district had two campuses, namely Roxton High (Grades 7–12) and Roxton Elementary (grades PK–6).



In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[1]

During the 2012–2013 school year, the Roxton Lions won the state championship in boys basketball, beating the Douglass Indians from Douglass, Texas.

In 2018, the district leadership stated that it wished to consolidate due to financial problems and that it was holding discussions with two potential suitor school districts.[2] There was also consideration of the district becoming elementary only.[3] Roxton ISD and Chisum ISD formed a consolidation agreement, signed by the board of Chisum ISD,[4] and the measure was to be put to the voters.[5]

Roxton ISD closed after the 2018–2019 school year and consolidated with the Chisum Independent School District.[6]
