SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - School officials are asking for name suggestions for a planned elementary school on Santa Fe's south side.

A  Santa Fe Public Schools Board of Education committee is seeking nominations until next Tuesday for the new elementary school that will serve Latino immigrant students.

The committee says it wants to name the school after an individual or historical figure linked to the state and to the field of education.

A group of retired educators are seeking to have the school named after George I. Sanchez, a New Mexico-born pioneering scholar and civil rights leader.

There are schools in Texas and California named after the late-Sanchez, who wrote about the education of Mexican Americans in the 1940s. But there are no schools in New Mexico named after the educator.
