Novice Independent School District
Novice ISD had one school that served students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelve.
In May, 2012, it celebrated its 100th graduating class, but closed that summer due to financial troubles, and formally consolidated with Coleman ISD on March 1, 2013. The last time two school districts in the Abilene, Texas area, or the "Big Country", had consolidated was the 2005 merger of the Haskell Independent School District and the Rochester Independent School District; the latter was absorbed into the former.
