A letter requesting the school be named after former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama was submitted to the West Contra Costa Unified School District Board of Education in September. 

The Board of Education, pursuant to Board Policy 7310, agreed to convene an ad hoc committee to consider renaming Wilson Elementary School and appointed two members to sit on the body.

If the committee votes to change the name, the proposal will go before the WCCUSD Board of Education in February.
