Itasca Independent School District is a public school district based in Itasca, Texas (USA) located in north central Hill County. Its mascot is a creature from American folklore, the Wampus Cat.

In addition to Itasca, the district also serves a portion of Carl's Corner.

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

The Itasca Independent School district received national attention by invoking an indefinite suspension on student Kenneth Fails at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. He had been suspended for several weeks while in fifth grade in the 2009-2010 school year as well, both for refusing to cut his long hair.
