Leander ISD is asking community members to help name its newest elementary school slated to open next school year.

What you need to know

Residents in Leander ISD can submit their nominations to name the district’s 30th elementary campus through Sept. 29. The district broke ground on Elementary School No. 30 on April 28 off San Gabriel Parkway and Bagdad Road with an anticipated opening date of August 2024.

A School Naming Committee of residents and students in the new school's attendance zone will review the community's submissions and make a recommendation to the board of trustees.

The school must be named after one of the following, according to the district's policy:
  • A historical or geographical site or community
  • A deceased, significant individual
  • A local, state, or national historical event or place
  • A significant state or national figure
  • A person who has made a significant contribution to education in the district
What else?

Elementary School No. 30 will have the capacity to serve 800 students and is funded by savings from 2007 and 2017 bonds, district officials said.

The school is one of four new elementary campuses planned to open in the district over the next 10 years and will help relieve capacity in the northwest portion of the district at Bagdad and Plain elementary schools, Chief Operations Officer Jimmy Disler said at an Aug. 10 meeting.
