Trustees approve changing names of four schools named after Confederate generals


Dallas ISD trustees unanimously voted Thursday night to approve changing the names of four district campuses named after Confederate generals.

Stonewall Jackson, William L. Cabell, Albert Sidney Johnston and Robert E. Lee elementary schools will receive new names. Each school will establish committees made of teachers, parents and administrators to determine new names for the four campuses. Those committees will then bring the recommended new school names before the board by February.

Trustees will vote whether to approve the new recommended school names at the regularly scheduled Feb. 22 board meeting. The new names will go into effect July 1, 2018.
