Northwest ISD Wants Public's Help in Naming New Elementary School

Nominee process open until Oct. 13, vote to come in December

The Northwest Independent School District wants the public's help naming a new elementary school.

The district's board of trustees and administration asked Monday for people to submit nominations for the district's 18th elementary school set to open in August 2018.

Nominees will be considered only if they meet at least one of the following criterion.

  • In memory of a person who has served the District or community, especially in service to children, and whose virtues or characteristics will serve as role models to students, staff and the community;
  • In memory of any person who has made a s significant contribution to society and/or education, whose name shall lend prestige or status to an institution of learning;
  • A local residential or geographic area (names in this category should be "neutral" if more than one community will be served by a particular facility); or
  • A District property donor or his or her family members.

"Nominations received through Oct. 13 will be reviewed by a naming selection committee and recommended to the Board on Nov. 13. The Board of Trustees will vote on the names at the Dec. 11 school board meeting," the district said.

An electronic nomination form is available on the district's website at nisdtx.org/elem18, or a hard copy may be requested by calling 817-215-0171. The district said additional information may be included, such as news clippings, letters of recommendation and/or printed resources that would assist the board in making a decision.

The school, whose principal is expected to be named in the spring, will serve students from kindergarten through grade 8. The school is being built north of U.S. Highway 287, east of Farm-to-Market Road 156 and south of Bonds Ranch Road in the Revolstoke subdivision.
