Austin ISD is scheduled to open the new relief campus next door to Blazier Elementary School this August, and the district is still accepting name options for the new campus.

Those interested in suggesting a name for the campus can make a submission online until June 5. The district’s school naming committee will meet June 9 to discuss possible options for the campus, and the AISD board of trustees will make a final determination the campus’s name later this summer.


AISD broke ground on the $50 million relief campus June 4, 2019, and the school is being funded through the district’s 2017 bond. The new facility will house students from third through sixth grade, while the existing school will continue to operate as a kindergarten through second-grade school.

Blazier Elementary School is located in Southeast Austin at 8601 Vertex Blvd., Austin, and serves the Onion Creek, Goodnight Ranch and Bradshaw Crossing neighborhoods.
