Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) has received several questions concerning a Go Fund Me campaign raising money to pay possible costs associated with a citizen’s suggestion to change the names of two Division schools.
The campaign is NOT sponsored by PWCS. It was started by School Board Chairman Ryan Sawyers—as a private citizen—to fund possible costs associated with his suggestion to change the names of Stonewall Jackson High School and Stonewall Middle School. Mr. Sawyers’ proposal to change the names, or raise private money for that purpose, has not been formally raised with, discussed, or voted, on by the full Prince William County School Board, which would need to approve any change or direct funding by a majority vote.
Currently, PWCS is neither promoting the campaign, nor currently involved in vetting donors or accepting funds.
