Two Toledo Public Schools East Broadway Middle School and Oakdale Elementary are being considered for possible name changes.
An ad hoc committee of the board of education has reviewed the proposal to change East Broadway, 1755 East Broadway, to Union City Middle School and to rename Oakdale, 1620 East Broadway, in honor of the late Joseph Flores, a former Lucas County Juvenile Court judge.
The proposed name changes are being considered by both schools leaders and their surrounding communities.
We want to make changes that are reflective of what the community wants, said Steve Steel, president of the school board and a member of the ad hoc committee.
