In June, as part of a Black Lives Matter resolution, the School Board committed to supporting a process for renaming both Jefferson and Washington Elementary Schools.
The renaming process has begun for Jefferson Elementary School, following the policy used successfully for Sylvia Mendez Elementary School and building upon a history of prior efforts to rename Jefferson Elementary School. The renaming of Washington Elementary School will begin after the Jefferson renaming process has concluded.
Naming Suggestions Form Open until 9/27
There is now a School Name Suggestion Form which is open and available for anyone who would like to suggest a new school name for the school formerly known as “Jefferson.” The form will be open until 5 pm on Sunday, September 27.
