Lake Travis ISD officials are soliciting suggestions for a potential name and mascot for the district’s third middle school currently under construction in Western Travis County.
Located off State Highway 71 and Vail Divide behind the district’s Transportation, Distribution and Data Center, the $76.2 million facility was designed by Fields & Associates Architects and will be built by American Constructors. The 240,000 square foot campus will accommodate 1,200 students in two-story, grade-level houses with views of the Texas Hill Country. The school will feature abundant natural lighting, outdoor learning areas, and athletic facilities. The project is part of the district’s $253 million bond program approved by voters in November 2017.
In accordance with school board policy CW(Local), district facilities shall be named for local residential or geographic areas or regional, state, or national landmarks and/or historical events. All suggested school names and mascots received will be presented to the Lake Travis school board during its May 15, 2018 regular meeting. A final decision by the school board is expected to occur during its June 19, 2018 regular meeting.
The public survey, available on each campus website and on the district’s ‘School Matters’ online news, is open through May 8, 2018.
Construction of Middle School 3 is expected to be complete by August 2019.
