arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board shall name district schools and other district-owned or leased buildings, grounds, and facilities in recognition of:

1. Individuals, living or deceased, and entities that have made outstanding contributions, including financial contributions, to the school community

2. Individuals, living or deceased, who have made contributions of statewide, national, or worldwide significance

3. The geographic area in which the school or building is located

The Board encourages community participation in the process of selecting names. A citizen advisory committee shall be appointed to review name suggestions and submit recommendations for the Board's consideration.

(cf. 1220 - Citizen Advisory Committees)

Any name adopted for any new school shall not be so similar to the name of any existing district school as to result in confusion to members of the community.

Before adopting any proposed name, the Board shall hold a public hearing at which members of the public will be given an opportunity to provide input.

(cf. 9320 - Meetings and Notices)

When naming or renaming a district school, building, or facility, the Board may specify the duration for which the name shall be in effect.


Upon request, the Board shall consider naming buildings, parts of buildings, or athletic fields, in honor of the contributions of the students, staff members, and community members who have been deceased for at least one year.
