ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- People who live in the area served by Meriwether Lewis Elementary School can now share their opinions about their school’s name.

Albemarle County Public Schools has launched an online survey through which people can prioritize naming categories and submit name recommendations.

According to a release, recommendations can include retaining the school’s current name.

This survey will be available until Nov. 2.

The results of this survey will be shared ahead of a public meeting that will be held on Nov. 9, during which people will be able to comment and share thoughts on the history of the school and the survey results.

The Community Advisory Committee is running it as part of a division-wide process to review the names of all schools that have been named for an individual.

This review process aims to make sure the names of schools are consistent with the division’s values of equity, excellence, family and community, and wellness.

Anyone interested in speaking at the meeting is asked to register by sending an email to [email protected] by 9 a.m. on Nov. 9.

“We look forward to hearing the Meriwether Lewis community’s ideas about the name of their school,” said Karen Waters, the committee’s project manager. “This process works best when we hear from a wide array of voices, and we urge all members of the school community to take a few minutes to provide their input through the survey and to attend the public meeting on Nov. 9.”

After the public meeting, the committee will narrow down the list of submitted recommendations to five and then solicit further community feedback.

If the current name is among the three finalists, the committee will research the life of Meriwether Lewis, an early American explorer who was born in Albemarle County.

Updates on the process will be available online here.

Seven other Albemarle County schools have already had their names reviewed, with three names being retained and four changed.
