Final chance to submit new name for Robert E. Lee Elementary

It’s your last chance to submit a new name for Robert E. Lee Elementary. The school is being renamed after parents complained it shouldn’t be named after the Confederate general.

The school’s name has been an issue for about a year. AISD started taking community input about renaming Lee Elementary last month. After about two weeks of accepting nominations the process ends today.

The school’s Campus Advisory Committee voted unanimously to change the name of Lee Elementary after parents complained the name glorified Lee who was a general in the Confederate Army during the U.S. Civil War. They felt the name should be changed because it is offensive to minorities.

You can submit your name idea online here.

The deadline is 5 p.m. this evening (4/15).
