JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Duval County School Board will meet today to establish a procedure to move forward with the renaming of local schools.
The board is already in the process of renaming 6 local schools named after Confederate generals.
A crowd-funding campaign is expected to offset the costs of the name changes. The board said funds from the campaign would go to purchasing new signs, paint, team uniforms, and more.
