List of school districts in Texas

Last updated

This is a list of school districts in Texas , sorted alphabetically.

Contents

Geographical school districts in Texas are (with one exception, the Stafford Municipal School District) completely independent from city or county jurisdiction.

Texas school district boundaries are not always aligned with county or city boundaries; a district can occupy several counties and cities, while a single city (especially larger ones such as Dallas, Houston, or San Antonio) may be split between several districts.

Almost all Texas school districts use the title "Independent School District", or ISD. Except for Stafford, those few districts that do not have "ISD" in their names are nonetheless ISDs.

This list does not include:

It does include Independent School Districts run by orphanages. However, there were only two known examples, the Masonic Home Independent School District (which closed in 2005 and is listed with the other defunct school districts below the main list) and the Boles Independent School District (which later expanded to serve homes in the nearby area).

All districts come under the jurisdiction of the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Extracurricular activities involving competitions between schools typically come under the jurisdiction of the University Interscholastic League (UIL), which is not part of TEA.

LaBelle is an unincorporated community on Taylor Bayou and FM 365, ten miles south of Beaumont, in central Jefferson County, Texas, United States. It is part of the Beaumont–Port Arthur Metropolitan Statistical Area. Although officially recognized settlers had lived in the Taylor Bayou area since the 1830s, a post office was not established at the community known as Lower Taylor's Bayou until 1888. In that year new postmaster J. E. Broussard named the post office LaBelle in honor of his fiancée, Mary Bell Bordages. The area's first school was probably started by Leo Craigen, near what later became the Port Arthur Country Club. Located in the fertile but flood-prone prairies of the upper Texas Gulf Coast, LaBelle was the site of one of several pumping stations designed to control flooding and drainage along Taylor Bayou. Because of its somewhat isolated location, the LaBelle post office was discontinued in 1914. Local schools were consolidated with those of the town of Fannett in 1923. Fourteen years later, however, the discovery of large quantities of oil and natural gas at the LaBelle oilfield, five miles south of the community, sparked new interest in the area. Scattered residences, the pumping station, and oilfields and gas lines to the south marked the LaBelle community on maps during the mid-1970s.
