What's In a Name? AISD Facility Naming Deadline Tomorrow

The deadline for naming two Austin school facilities is Feb. 8. And while “Southeast Bus Terminal” and “North Central Elementary School #1” aren’t without their charms, AISD hopes Austin can do better.

The AISD Board of Trustees began taking suggestions for the names of both a bus stop and a new elementary school in mid-January. The achool board will then decide on names during its March meeting and announce its selection March 19. 

District facilities may be named for an individual who is recognized and widely respected by the general public, or for a place, such as a landmark or neighborhood.

The board is responsible for naming facilities like buildings, wings, classrooms, gyms, band halls, libraries, auditoriums and cafeterias.

Nomination submissions may be found here
