Help name NBISD’s newest elementary school

 

New Braunfels ISD is accepting nominations for the name of the newest elementary school opening in August 2024. The school will be located in the Legend Pond subdivision on the far east side of the district. This school is being built with funds from the 2018 Bond Program.


All nominations must be submitted to the NBISD on the official nomination form. All nominations are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 19, 2022. 

 
NOMINATION FORM

 

“As with any new facility in NBISD, the district has a process to name each new school or facility,” said Dr. Cade Smith, superintendent of schools. “The process involves working with the community to compile recommendations on names to take before the school board. This is an important process and one that will connect the school and community in which it serves.”

 

The following criteria should be considered before submitting a nomination. According to Board Policy CW(LOCAL), the Board may name a District facility for one of the following:

 

  • Historical or geographical location;
  • A historical community;
  • A significant individual or family making a significant contribution to public education in the District; or
  • A significant or national figure making a significant contribution to public education.

 

To be eligible to have a facility, property, or fixture named after them, an individual must have been deceased for a minimum of 25 years.

 

 Nominators are encouraged to provide the following information for the nominated names: 

  • If the nominated name is a historical or geographic location or a historical community, the name submitted shall be accompanied by written rationale and/or a description of the significance of the name.
  • If the nominated name is an individual or family, the name submitted shall be accompanied by a written rationale and/or a description of the person’s/persons’ accomplishments related to public education in the District.
  • If the nominated name is a state or national figure, the name submitted shall be accompanied by a written rationale and/or a description of the person’s/persons’ accomplishments related to public education.
