TYLER – Tyler ISD Board President Fritz Hager announced Wednesday a board agenda item will be added to discuss the possibility of changing the name of Robert E. Lee High School. The agenda item was requested by Board Vice President Wade Washmon. The discussion is to consider changing the school’s name to only Lee High School. The next School Board meeting will take place Monday. The move comes after a group of East Texans started an online petition to keep the current name. According to our news partner KETK, petitioners say the school district’s focus needs to be on education and keeping children safe at school. Last month, the TISD Board pulled the name change topic from a June meeting agenda. Last week, a parent group wrote postcards in hopes of getting the school’s name changed.
