JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Signs are being replaced as Jacksonville's Nathan B. Forrest High School is getting a new name.
    
The Duval County School Board agreed this year to change the name of the school, ending a decades-long debate. The school was named in 1959 after a former Confederate general and the co-founder of the Ku Klux Klan. It is becoming Westside High to reflect the school's neighborhood.
    
The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1iDqcaX ) reports businesses and community members have either given donations or in-kind donations, but that's not enough to offset the costs to the school board.
    
It is costing $220,000 to change the signs, gym floor and student athletic uniforms. So far, the district has received about $2,087 in donations.
    
The school board is taking money from the general fund to cover the changes.
