Christina Seeks Feedback On Proposed Name for New Bancroft School

On August 8, at the monthly board meeting, the Christina School District Building Naming Committee made a recommendation to the Christina Board of Education to name the new school "Maurice Pritchett, Sr. Academy."  The District would like to invite you to participate in the public comment period regarding the proposed name.

The online public comment period will be open from August 9 to August 31. We encourage you to use the link below to leave your feedback and thoughts on the proposed name. Your comments will be carefully considered as we make a final decision.

In addition to the online comment period, there will also be an in-person public comment forum held on August 17 from 6:00-8:00 PM. The forum will take place at the Bancroft School Auditorium. We encourage community members to attend this event and express their thoughts on the proposed name.

Your feedback is highly valuable to us, and we appreciate your time and participation in this process. The new Bancroft School is a significant project for our district, and we want to ensure that the chosen name is representative of our community's values and aspirations.
