Public comment wanted on Woodrow Wilson High School name
FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live)-
The history behind Woodrow Wilson High School’s name has people in the community calling for change. Fargo Public Schools is asking you for name suggestions.
As the 28th president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson left behind a racist legacy. He once threw a Civil-Rights leader out of the White House.
The district is accepting ideas through the end of the month.
FPS community members who would like to submit comments can find directions and fill out the Public Comment Form on the FPS website. Respondents can call 701-446-1005 if they need help completing the form.
Submissions will be reviewed by the Board of Education’s Communications, Engagement, and Advocacy Committee. Members will forward a recommendation to the full School Board for consideration at the October 13 School Board meeting.
Administrative Policy (AP) 3260 Naming and Renaming of Fargo Public School Buildings and Other Spaces specifies the process for community members to suggest names for buildings and spaces while also allowing for a process to request a name of school building or other space be rescinded. AP 3260 is available at this link.
