FUSD is seeking community members interested in participating on an advisory committee for the possible re-naming of the former Timothy Rix Elementary School - 43100 Isle Royale Street – recently re-acquired by FUSD to be re-purposed as an Early Learning Center. The Committee’s purpose is to solicit and review name suggestions and to submit recommendations to the Board for adoption. The committee will also consider and make recommendations on school colors and mascots.
The participation of the individuals on the committee will be for a limited term. There will be an initial kick-off meeting in Fall 2018. Depending on the process determined by the committee, there will likely be two to three meetings to be scheduled in the autumn/winter.
Before the end of the school year, the committee will make a presentation to the Board of Education with their recommendations. The new school is expected to open for the beginning of the 2019-20 school year in August 2019.
