Dyess AFB Education and Academics


After moving to a new location, you’ll want to know what options are available for educational pursuits. The following chapter outlines Taylor County’s school systems, along with information about local libraries and higher education. Five public school districts serve children in Taylor County, and there are numerous private school, charter school and home-school options.



To be enrolled in a Texas School, a child must be at least 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 of the school year. Those wishing to register their child in school should bring the following to the school office: a birth certificate or other proof of identity, the child’s records from their most recent school and immunizations records. Many schools also require proof of residency. Check with the school for additional requirements. Required immunizations for a child enrolling in kindergarten are as follows: four or five doses of diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis; three or four doses of polio; two doses of measles, mumps and rubella; three doses of hepatitis B; two doses of varicella; and two doses of hepatitis A. For more details on Texas’ minimum vaccine requirements for students in grades K-12, visit the Texas Education Agency’s website at www.tea.state.tx.us.
