WILSON – The Wilson Board of Education will discuss changing the name of the Thomas Marks Elementary School when it meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Wilson High School Auditorium, 374 Lake St.

The board majority voted last October to close the district’s other elementary school, W. H. Stevenson School in Ransomville, at the end of the 2013-14 school year. The roughly 200 Stevenson students will transfer to the Thomas Marks School at 430 Young St., Wilson, in the fall. The Thomas Marks School currently serves around 300 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

Audience members will be able to give their opinions during the public comment period of the meeting.
