Information from the Corpus Christi Independent School District
The Corpus Christi Independent School District (CCISD) is seeking suggestions from the community for the naming of the District's newest school, a new high school located on the far southside of the city. The construction of the new high school is being paid for with bond dollars approved by voters in November 2010.
Board policy notes that a new school may be named for a person who is or has been prominent at the local, state, or national level. Schools can also bear the name of the subdivision or area in which they are located.
The District requires all naming suggestions to be submitted using the Proposed Name for Facility form, available via the District's website or at the Administration Building, In addition, if a person's name is being recommended, biographical data, information on significant contributions made by the individual, and reasons for nomination should be included. The documentation packet should also include the name and telephone number of the person submitting the nomination.
A Facility Naming Committee, made up of members of the CCISD Board of Trustees, will review recommendations for the new campus and determine the naming selection process and timeline. Facility Naming Committee members include Trustees Janie Bell, Dwayne Hargis, and Lucy Rubio.
Deadline for nominations to be received is 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, August 21, 2013.
Recommendations and documentation can be dropped off at the CCISD Administration Building, 801 Leopard Street, or mailed to the following address:
