AISD calls for public input on school renamings

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 by Katy McElroy

The Austin Independent School District Board of Trustees has been discussing the renaming of five schools that are named after people with ties to the Confederacy. The district would now like to open that discussion up to the community before it votes on Feb. 26. The first meeting will be today, Feb. 20, at the Austin Community College Eastview Campus Auditorium, 3401 Webberville Road; the second one is on Feb. 22, at the Gethsemane Lutheran Church Gymnasium, 200 W. Anderson Lane. Both meetings will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The meetings will not focus on specific school names but rather the idea of renaming all the schools. Food, interpretation and child care will be provided. Contact Laura DeGrush at 512-414-4962 or for more information.
