Re: Portola Middle School Renaming Proposal

West Contra Costa Unified School District has received a proposal to rename Portola Middle School after            Fred T. Korematsu, the Japanese American civil rights icon who defied internment  orders during World War II.

I am writing to make sure that you are informed about this proposal and to invite your  participation in one of the four community meetings being hosted by the committee  appointed by the Board of Education to consider the proposal.

Agendas are available on the District website,

The meeting dates, times and locations are:

 Tuesday, June 10 at 7 p.m. – Madera Elementary School, 8500 Madera Dr., El Cerrito                                  Tuesday, June 17 at 7 p.m. – Fairmont Elementary School, 724 Kearney St., El Cerrito                                Tuesday, June 26 at 7 p.m. – Harding Elementary School, 7230 Fairmount Av., El Cerrito                                  Tuesday, July 1 at 7 p.m. – Stege Elementary School, 4949 Cypress Av., Richmond

 If you have any questions or would like to make your opinion on the matter known, please contact Communications  Director Marcus Walton at or (510) 231-1151
