Legacy Learning Center

The former Haslet Elementary School building now holds a new meaningful name.

Northwest ISD Board of Trustees approved the recommendation to rename the building located at 501 Schoolhouse Road to Legacy Learning Center. 

Out of the 49 nominations received, 18 unique names were submitted and 12 names met the naming criteria. Before recommending the change to the board, the committee also considered approximately 125 additional names that were previously submitted.

The Legacy Learning Center currently houses the Special Programs Center. Renovations, which were funded by taxpayers in the 2017 bond, continue in other parts of the building, which will become a professional development center and home to the Horizons/RISE programs.

The name Legacy Learning Center allows the district to honor staff and educators by designating a location in the building for individuals who may not rise to the level of having a campus named after them, but have contributed to the “legacy” of Northwest ISD.

Suggestions included creating a Legacy Wall of plaques or photographs or naming rooms in the professional development center to honor teachers and community members who have helped to create a legacy for NISD.
