Next year, Prince William County’s 13th high school is set to open.
Located near Gainesville Middle School, the building is expected to hold more than 2,500 students.
A groundbreaking ceremony took place in May 2019, and a boundary plan was approved in June.
The public has an opportunity to weigh in on the school’s name.
On Tuesday, a virtual meeting is being held between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., according to a release from Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS).
Members of the Naming Committee will accept input about the name after a presentation.
Citizens may sign up to speak by registering for the meeting on GoToWebinar and filling out a form online by 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
They can also submit written comments by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before May 19.
Anyone who would like to leave a voicemail should call the PWCS Office of Facilities Services at 703-791-7312 by May 19.
The School Board will hear name suggestions from the committee on May 20 and is going to choose a name on June 10.
Speaking opportunities will be available during the meetings.
