First, BCPS asked the public for ideas about what to name Baltimore County’s newest middle school, a $116.75 million building on King Avenue in Rosedale with enough room for 1,410 seats when it opens to students in August 2024.
So, earlier this month, the voters spoke, all 3,562 of them. And after their ballots were counted and the results tallied, the preferred choices came down to two favorites: Northeast Middle School or Nottingham Middle School.
Now the hard part: Which will it be, Team BCPS? A new survey opens today, November 28, to allow you, your neighbors, and anyone else – including BCPS staff, students, and parents – to cast a ballot for one or the other name. This multilingual survey to determine the top vote-getter will be open through Tuesday, Dec. 12, by going to BCPS.
Once a winner has been chosen, the name will be reviewed by BCPS leadership and submitted to the Board of Education of Baltimore County for final approval by January 23, 2024, as stipulated by Board of Education Policy and Rule 7520 regarding the naming of a new school.
