Central Independent School District is a public school district based in the community of Pollok, Texas (USA). In addition to Central, a VERY small portion goes into the city of Lufkin.

In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[3]

History[edit]

Central Independent School District traces its origin to 1929 via the consolidation of five small schools that were located in the Pollok-Central area: Union, Durant, Pollok, Clawson and Allentown under the name Central Consolidated Common School District. By the 1939-1940 school year, the Cordaway Springs and Simpson schools had also merged with Central Consolidated. In 1955, Central converted from a Common School District to an Independent School District.

Schools[edit]

Central ISD has three campuses - Central High (Grades 9-12), Central Junior High (Grades 5-8), and Central Elementary (Grades EE-4). Two campuses, along with the administration building, are located at one campus on U.S. Highway 69N approximately seven miles north of Lufkin, Texas. The third campus, a new elementary building, is located just 1/2 mile north on HWY 69.
