Francis Pastorious School community meeting is Wednesday, May 13 at 5 p.m.

Rep. Stephen Kinsey discusses changing the school's name to honor David P. Richardson Jr.

Over a year ago, I began meeting with members in the northwest community about changing the name of the Francis Pastorious Mastery Charter School to honor a distinguished citizen, the Honorable David P. Richardson Jr. After a series of meetings with the Pastorious School Advisory Council and the school administration, I’m happy to announce that they voted to recommend a name change to Pastorious Richardson, Mastery Charter School.

For the second phase of this project, there will be a communitywide meeting involving students, parents, graduates and neighbors to gauge your opinion of the change. This meeting will be held at 5 p.m. today, at the Pastorious School.
