Renaming of J. J. Finley Elementary School

  • At a meeting on June 16, 2020, the School Board of Alachua County officially voted to rename J.J. Finley Elementary School. The vote was unanimous.

    At the same meeting, the Board approved a process to select a new name for the school that includes the creation of a committee made up of representatives from the school and the community, including civil rights advocates and local historians, to review names suggested by the public and recommend a new name. The School Board would then vote on a new name for the school during its meeting on August 18.

    Suggested names are listed below (including explanations and links to biographies, if provided):
