New Albemarle County school holds public meeting on naming

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - More than 150 people shared their opinions on the naming process of a new Albemarle County school that will merge Murray High and the Community Public Charter School, a middle school.

The advisory committee, comprised of students, parents, teachers and staff of the schools, held a virtual public meeting Monday night.

A list of 100 potential names will be cut significantly later this week.

“The committee meeting on Wednesday to narrow that list of wonderful options down to 10, at which point a survey will go out to our community to vote on favorite options from that list of 10” said head teacher Stephanie Passman.

A second public meeting will follow that, with the committee making a recommendation to superintendent Matt Haas for the school at the end of June or beginning of July.
