District Offices Hero Image

I. PURPOSE

The purpose of this policy is to clarify the name of the school district.

II. GENERAL STATEMENT OF POLICY

Pursuant to statute, the official name of the school district is Independent School District
No. 492. However, the school district is often referred to by other informal names. In
order to avoid confusion and to encourage consistency in school district letterheads,
signage, publications and other materials, the school board intends to establish a uniform
name for the school district.

III. UNIFORM NAME

  • The name of the school district shall be Austin Public Schools.
  • The name specified above may be used to refer to the school district and may be shown on school district letterheads, signage, publications and other materials.
  • In official communications and on school district ballots, the school district shall be referred to as Independent School District No. 492, but inadvertent failure to use the correct name shall not invalidate any legal proceeding or matter or affect the validity of any document.
