Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, named after the confederate general, was established in 1928.
Other Texas schools by the same name have been renamed in recent years, including a High School in Houston.
The board voted in favor of forming a committee to investigate the possible renaming of facilities before voting on renaming the school itself.
We can change the name, but I dont see why we cant do it responsibly.It would cost between $150/200,000 and $400,000 to rename Robert E Lee High School, a couple of board members said Wednesday night.
Board president Woods said the committee spoken of on Thursday will likely be made up of constituents from every district, and others, including community stakeholders.
