The process is NOW IN MOTION to change the names of ALL NINE targeted schools.
There is much more at stake here than signage and uniforms and mascots.
If you say nothing and do nothing, the names will be changed and the history of our great schools will be diminished and tarnished. You can access the dates and times of meetings specific to YOUR school by clicking HERE. That web page also has details on the steps in the process.
Educate yourselves and help us take action! Attend the community meetings and take your turn at the microphone to protest this shameless publicity grab by the Duval County School Board, which is allowing social and political currents to distract them from the real, meaningful, life-impacting work they were elected to do.
