As construction continues on Dripping Springs ISD’s fifth elementary school, which is expected to open in time for the 2021-22 school year, the district is asking residents to help name the future facility.
According to a news release from the district, a committee is creating a list of three recommendations to propose to district trustees Jan. 25. Name suggestions can be submitted to the committee online through Dec. 31. The submission form can be found here.
In June, DSISD broke ground on the new elementary school, which is located just south of the intersection of Darden Hill Road and Sawyer Ranch Road and will have a capacity of 850 students. The 110,000 square-foot school is located on 155 acres and will cost $37.5 million, funded through the district's 2018 bond.
According to the district, the process of creating attendance boundaries for the campus has not yet started.
All Dripping Springs campuses are named after natural springs that are located within the district. The school board's policy prevents naming schools after people.
