Independent of the District Naming Advisory Committee, the district also received a petition from the community to change the name of the school district to Miller Creek Elementary School District.  

The four petitions to change the name of the school district were submitted to the Marin Count Department of Elections who verified the the petitions meet the legal standard of at least 15 qualified signatures.
