Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE -

AUSTIN, Texas—School dis­trict lead­ers in Austin say they’ll move for­ward with re­nam­ing five schools whose names have ties to the Con­fed­er­acy, re­gard­less of whether lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties push back.

The Austin Amer­i­can-States­man re­ports ad­min­is­tra­tors ex­plained their pro­posal Mon­day to the dis­trict’s Board of Trustees.

The schools be­ing con­sid­ered are Ful­more Mid­dle School, Lanier High School, Rea­gan High School, East­side Me­mo­rial High School at The John­ston Cam­pus and the now-closed Al­lan Ele­men­tary School.
