MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County Schools (SCS) will undergo a name change as part of its rebranding.

SCS Superintendent Joris Ray would like to rebrand the district as “Memphis-Shelby County Schools,” recognizing the more than 80 percent of students who live inside city limits.

Ray said in a tweet Tuesday that “progress is impossible without change. ‘Reimagining 901′ incorporates a name change that reflects our geographic location and the families we serve.”

A rebranding proposal was introduced at State of the District in April 2021. The district received overwhelming support and positive feedback from the community following the announcement.

In addition to the district’s new name, SCS’ ‘reimagine’ plan proposes new school buildings and higher teacher pay

The Shelby County Board of Education will keep its legal name.
