FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Central Unified School District is asking residents what name they would like to see on one of its elementary schools.

Boardmembers voted last month in favor of renaming James K. Polk Elementary in west central Fresno.

Polk was the country's 11th president and a known slaveowner who shared racist views.

Community members can now submit potential new names for the campus.

The district says submissions will be reviewed by the board during the July 26th meeting.
