Nominations needed for names of new schools

December 16, 2011

The Northside ISD Board of Trustees is seeking nominations for the name of two new elementary schools and a middle school scheduled to open in 2013.

The nomination deadline for the schools is Jan. 13, 2012. The three schools that need names currently are referred to as: “Cielo Vista North area” Elementary School, “FM 471 North #2 area” Elementary School, and “FM 471 North area” Middle School.

Here’s a map that shows the approximate location of the new schools.

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 can be named after prominent Texas leaders or those who have made significant statewide contributions to education.

The Board of Trustees is scheduled to vote on the new school names April 24, 2012.
