STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -

Penn State's trustees will consider renaming a child care center named for a retired administrator charged with failing to report suspected child abuse committed by Jerry Sandusky.

A discussion about renaming the Gary Schultz Child Care Center is on the agenda for the trustees meeting scheduled for Friday in State College.

University spokesman David La Torre tells the Centre Daily Times of State CollegeĀ  that a name change is in the best interests of families who use the center.

Schultz, a former university vice president, and athletic director Tim Curley are charged with failing to report suspected abuse and perjury in connection with the Sandusky investigation.

Late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno's name was removed from a child care center on Nike's corporate campus in July.
