HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Independent School District Board of Education has voted to begin the process of renaming three schools named after men tied to the Confederacy.

The board approved three resolutions Thursday. Albert Sidney Johnston and Sidney Lanier middle schools and Jefferson Davis High School will undergo the renaming process.

Each campus will be required to form a school-naming committee comprised of staff, students, parents, and school stakeholders. That committee will have to submit recommendations to trustees by May.

Henry Grady, Richard Dowling and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson middle schools, and Lee High School have already begun the renaming process.
