The name of the Dixie Elementary School in San Rafael (shown above) will be changed to Lucas Valley Elemen­tary School as reported by the Associated Press. The name was changed because critics linked the name to the Confederacy and slavery. The name of the dis­trict, which the school belongs to, will also be changed from Dixie School District to the Miller Creek Elementa­ry School District. The name change was made by the trustees of the 150-year-old Dixie School District who voted 3-1 with one abstention to change the name. The new name for the elementary school and its school dis­trict will take effect on Aug. 22, 2019.
