Question:
Larry Williams wrote in asking what the process would be for consideration of a name change from Sparks Middle to Landsberry Middle School, in honor of Michael Landsberry, the teacher who was killed ?   He wants to know if it would take a formal request or a petition to make that happen?

Answer:
I checked with Calli Fisher in the communications department at the Washoe County School District. 
She told me this is an idea that has been proposed informally and school officials are in the process of trying to figure out what the proper channels are for such a request. 
  So it's in the early stages but it seems like there's already some support or at least receptiveness to the idea. 
It does seem like it would be a nice tribute to Michael Landsberry in the wake of Monday's deadly shooting and a fitting way to honor him.
  We'll check back and see if the proposal gains steam in the days and weeks ahead.   
If it does, we'll be sure to let you know.
