We are hearing rumors J.E.B. Stuart Elementary School could be named after President Barack Obama.
Barack Obama Elementary School is one of seven names that RPS will be considering at there meeting on Monday to rename the school. They are considering renaming the school after a wave of momentum across the south to rename schools named after Confederate figures.
The majority of the School Board representatives seem interested in changing the name of the school which would cost the city close to $25,000 to complete.
Some of the other options that we are hearing are possible new names for the school include: Northside Elementary, Wishtree Elementary, Henry Marsh Elementary, Albert Norrell Elementary, Barbara Johns Elementary, and Oliver Hill Elementary. The School Board meets at 6 p.m. tonight.
