School Name Nominations

The naming of all new Leander Independent School District schools and facilities is governed by LISD Board Policy CW (Local)

New schools and facilities will be named by a vote of the Board of Trustees, which will consider namesake nominations from community members and district employees. After the vote, the names will be publicly announced.

Leander ISD requests that the online form be filled out in its entirety and will consider fully submitted applications. Please note that it cannot be saved and submitted at a later date. 

The current school name nomination form will close Nov. 14, 2018. Discussion of school names by the Board of Trustees is scheduled for Nov. 29, 2018, followed by possible action by the Board of Trustees at the Dec. 13, 2018 board meeting.
