In May 2021, voters approved the construction of the district's 15th elementary school. Construction is underway in the Sunfield subdivision and the school is scheduled to open in August 2022. The building needs a name and you are invited to help make the choice. The Board of Trustees has empaneled a school naming committee that will review suggestions and make a recommendation. Follow the process and make a suggestion on this webpage.
Hays CISD Board Policy CW (Local) outlines the full criteria and process for naming facilities in the district.
New schools can be named for:
- An historical or geographical site or community;
- The subdivision in which the facility is located;
- A significant local, state, or national figure (living or deceased);
- A person who has made a significant contribution to education in the district (living or deceased);
- A local, state, or national historical event or place; or
- A person or people who have donated land or money for the property or facility.
Nominations can be accepted from:
- A resident or student of the district
- An entity that pays taxes into the district's general fund
- A non-profit entity that provides services or funding, direct or in-kind, to the district.
- Nominations must be in good taste, and not generally considered offensive, silly, or embarrassing.
