Pasco County Schools is seeking the public’s help in suggesting names for a new high school that will be focused on technology and business programs, and is set to open in August of 2022 in East Pasco.
The school will be located at Curley Road and Keifer Road in Wesley Chapel on the former Kirkland Ranch property, according to a news release from the Pasco school district.
Program plans for the school include academies for business, finance and marketing; digital technology; engineering technology; health science and human services; transportation technology; and building technology.
The school will serve grades nine through 12, and will offer industry certification in high-demand career fields.
School Board policy encourages community members, educators and students to provide suggestions for school names.
The board will have the final say on the school’s name, and once adopted, the name will be considered permanent unless the facility or its use changes, the news release adds.
