School Renaming Process

The Wiseburn community has mobilized around the exciting opportunity to collectively affirm existing names of our schools or to select more timeless namesakes that align with the values of Wiseburn's tight-knit, inclusive, and welcoming community.

Through the assembled citizens advisory committee, Wiseburn looks forward to collaboratively affirming existing names or uncovering new names that best represent the district, now and in the years to come.
