FF - Naming New Facilities
The Board will select names for schools.
In considering names for schools, preference will be given to names associated with the community. Names of historical persons, places and events may be subsequently considered. Names of persons who are living or have been deceased less than three years will not be considered.
Recommendations from parents, students, staff and the community will be considered.
Locations within a school or ancillary facility (e.g., auditorium, athletic fields) shall not be given separate names.
The superintendent will, upon request, prepare for the Board a list of possible names for each new school.
