The schools were created at the start of the 2021-22 school year and serve students who wish to continue learning at home. According to the district, school names are typically chosen based on the communities they are located in, but because the two campuses—one for grades K-8 and one for grades 9-12—do not have physical locations, the community has been invited to help choose a name.
"Now that the school year is underway and our school communities for WCS Online K-8 and WCS Online 9-12 have been formulated, we are excited to begin a formal school naming process for these two virtual campuses," WCS Assistant Superintendent Leigh Webb said in a release. "Once the school names have been recommended and voted upon by the WCS school board, the two schools will begin the process of selecting school colors and mascots."
The district is accepting name suggestions through Oct. 18 and intends to select names for the schools during the school board's November meeting.
