Nominations for new school name invited

December 17, 2015

The Northside ISD Board of Trustees is seeking nominations for a name for an elementary school scheduled to open in 2017.

The nomination deadline for the school is Jan. 15, 2016. The yet-to-be named school is currently known as its working name:  “Kallison Ranch area #2” Elementary School.

The school will be located in far west Bexar County outside Loop 1604, off of FM 471 in the Valley Ranch subdivision near Harlan High School. The school will likely relieve overcrowding at Henderson and Scarborough elementary 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.

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.
