The Castro Site Planning Council is asking the public for its input on naming the two new Castro schools, following a decision to split up the Mountain View Whisman School District's Dual Immersion (DI) program and the Castro Elementary traditional school program.
The planning council is soliciting suggestions for new names for the schools, which can be submitted online by clicking here or submitted to the Castro School Office at 505 Escuela Ave.
Submissions must be in by April 29. Questions include what the new name should be and why, and whether either of the schools should retain the name Mariano Castro.
The DI program and the traditional school are currently under the same roof as Castro Elementary, but the school board voted late last year to separate the two to better focus on underachieving students in the district.
The schools will be officially divided on July 1 this year.
