New North MS Naming Nominations
A new middle school, unofficially referred to as 'New North MS' or 'Coolidge MS', will open on the campus of Coolidge HS in SY19 - 20. DCPS is asking the public to submit nominations to officially name the school that will serve the Brightwood, LaSalle-Backus, Takoma and Whittier school communities. Please note there are no plans to rename Coolidge HS. This nomination form is exclusively for the new middle school that will have its own Principal and staff. A school name can be based on a person or a place. You will find additional criteria on the following pages of this online form.

To learn more about the opening of the school, including background on the decision and with how DCPS has engaged input from a variety of stakeholders, please visit the DCPS school planning blog:

The DCPS school planning team aims to lead the process below starting in June 2018 and concluding for a decision to be made in November 2018. Please see the full process below. The period that DCPS will collect nominations is the first step. While there is not yet a deadline for the nomination period, we anticipate it will be between the first day of school (8/20) and Labor Day (9/3). This will help provide enough time for Steps 2 - 5 below to have a decision by November.

The school planning team is excited to engage with communities to collect nominations, in accordance with the DCPS school naming policy:
