S and S Consolidated Independent School District is a public school district based in Sadler, Texas (USA).

The district serves the cities of Sadler and Southmayd as well as rural areas in west central Grayson County, and was formed by consolidation of prior districts with the first graduating class in 1961.

Though Sadler is the larger of the two towns, the first alphabetically, and the location of the administration building, the "S&S" does not necessarily mean "Sadler and Southmayd" – the district does not state which S stands for which community.

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

Schools[edit]

S&S Consolidated ISD has a total of three schools - two in Sadler and one in Southmayd.
