Nominations for names of new schools invited

December 21, 2012

 

The Northside ISD Board of Trustees is seeking nominations for two new schools scheduled to open in 2014.

The nomination deadline for the schools, now referred to as “Cielo Vista South area Elementary School” and “Stevens Ranch area” Middle School, is Jan. 11, 2013.

According to Board policy, elementary schools can be named after the area or subdivision in which they are located or after individuals who have made significant contributions to the educational program of the District or the community. Middle schools are named after prominent Texas leaders or those who have made significant statewide contributions to education.

To read more about the criteria and to submit a nomination, please visit the Name A School website and complete the online form.

School name nominations submitted to the Board of Trustees will remain on file for one year from the date of receipt.

Previously, nominations remained on file permanently, but the Board recently instituted the one-year time frame to streamline the nominating process and to make sure submissions are kept up-to-date.
