School names are selected by the Board of Trustees after a community engagement process. For each new school, the public has the opportunity to nominate names of individuals or geographic locations. The School Naming Committee narrows down the nominated names to a short list of no more than 10 names during a public meeting, which are then provided to the community for a vote. The Committee then takes the community vote into consideration at another public meeting and selects its top three names to forward to the Board of Trustees. The Trustees ultimately pick the final name in an open, public meeting.
Schools To Be Named
The School Naming Committee has created a list of 10 semi finalists for the name of the new elementary school in Cold Springs, based on community name nominations. Votes have been submitted and the School Naming Committee will soon recommend the top three to the Board of Trustees, who will decide on an official name.
The next school to be named will be the new elementary school off of Rio Wrangler Parkway. Stay tuned for information about how to submit a name nomination and vote on your favorites.
