History

McIntire School was originally built and owned by Albemarle County.

When their School Board divested of the property in the mid-1970's, the Board of Supervisors was considering the vacant building for the administrative building, that needed a rezoning. City Council was concerned about traffic. A rezoning request was deferred on August 25, 1975. [3] City Council zoned the property as R-1 later that year. [4]

McChalva

The yearbook's name is made up for the first couple of letters from McIntire, Charlottesville, Albemarle, and Virginia. [2]
