TOWSON, Md. - Baltimore County Public Schools is giving the community the chance to name the jurisdiction’s newest school, which is now under construction in the Mays Chapel community located in the Lutherville/Timonium area.
"A goal for this school is for it to be a truly community-oriented school, one in which collaboration with parents, teachers, students and the community is an important and beneficial hallmark," said Steve Coco, principal of the new school in a statement. "I'm looking forward to hearing from voices across our area through the process of considering and selecting just the right name for our new school."
After the nomination period concludes, two top choices will be submitted to county schools’ Superintendent Dallas Dance for review. Final considerations will be submitted by the Superintendent for recommendation to the Board of Education.
According to a county schools news release, all submissions must meet school system criteria to be eligible for consideration. Names can be community, subdivision or street on which the school is located; the geographic location of the school; a significant and distinguishable landmark, which can assist in locating the general area of the school or a deceased, prominent person who has made an outstanding contribution of service to Baltimore County, Maryland or to the United States.
Nominations began Monday, and will close at 5 p.m. on Oct.18. Nominations may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org , and are open to all residents, including BCPS staff, students, parents and community members. Residents may submit more than one name.
