Fargo School Board to vote on new name for Woodrow Wilson High School


The Fargo Public School Board of Education will vote tonight on a new name for Woodrow Wilson High School, effective for the 2021-2022 school year, directing administration to begin the steps needed to rename the high school.

The 129 name list was trimmed to 26 last month, at which time the Board completed a "forced ranking" of the 26 names, forwarding the top five to tonight's board meeting for consideration and final approval of the new name of the high school.

The top five names from the ranking, by points received, are: Dakota High School, Central High School, Voyageur High School, Agnes Geelan High School and Valley High School.

Tonight, the board is set to discuss the names and then complete another forced ranking to assist in the process of selecting a final name.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Fargo South High School Theater.
