SAN ANGELO, Texas — The San Angelo Independent School District has come up with a comprehensive cost analysis of what it would take to change the name of Robert E. Lee Middle School in San Angelo; if that is what the board decides to do.
According to their findings, it would cost:
- $62,760 to change the names on uniforms.
- $9,000 to change the marquee.
- $2,308 repaint the boy's gym.
At Tuesday's pre-agenda workshop, SAISD superintendent Dr. Dethloff mentioned the boy's gym needs to be resanded, repainted and recoated regardless of the name change because of discoloration.
The total cost of changing the name of Robert E. Lee Middle School would come to $74,068.
According to the district, the potential costs are already available in the school's current budget and would not result in a tax increase for citizens.
The board will vote the week of October 19-23 on whether or not to rename the school. If they vote in favor of renaming, additional meetings will take place extending out to November 2020 to confirm a new name for the school.
These are some of the suggestions released by the district, based on citizen input:
- Concho / Concho Valley Middle School
- Tom Green Middle School
- San Angelo Middle School
- Sherwood Middle School
- Mesquite Middle School
- Fort Concho Middle School
- Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School
- JFK Middle School
- George Bush Middle School
- Rosa Parks Middle School
- Mandela Middle School
