School board moves ahead with name change

April 18th, 2016 by Ken

The North Thurston School Board has moved ahead with the next step in changing the name of the school district – -but was reluctant to move too quickly.

There was no unanimity of the need for a name change among the board members, at the work session, and no agreed upon name – – although Lacey Public Schools was suggested.

The board opted to have a public meeting to solicit input on a possible name change, but in order to do so, it had to set a public hearing with the proposed name.  But, prior to that, the board wanted a public meeting to allow those with strong feelings to make their views known.

The district will also undertake a community survey to gather additional comments.

The tentative date for the public meeting is May 12.

Below are some excerpts from the work session.
