Jim Ned Consolidated Independent School District is a school district based in Tuscola, Texas (USA). The district serves approximately 1,000 students in southeastern Taylor County, including the towns of Tuscola, Buffalo Gap and Lawn. A small portion of northeastern Runnels County lies within the district. The district is named after the Jim Ned Creek, which runs through all three towns. The creek is named after Jim Ned, who was an Indian cavalry scout for the US Army.

Colt McCoy, the former starting quarterback for the Texas Longhorns who now plays for the NFL's Washington Redskins, graduated from the district's Jim Ned High School.[1][2]

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