The Northside ISD Board of Trustees is seeking nominations for a name for an elementary school scheduled to open in 2018.

 The nomination deadline for the school is Jan. 13, 2017. The yet-to-be named school is currently known as its working name:  “Grosenbacher area” Elementary School.

The school will be located in far southwest Bexar County outside Loop 1604, south of Potranco Road and east of Grosenbacher Road. The school will likely relieve overcrowding at Behlau and possibly other surrounding 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.
