9300 Naming Facilities

The Board considers naming facilities to be a significant endeavor since the name of a facility can reflect upon the students, staff, school system and community. Facilities shall be named in accordance with geographic location or similar site-specific identifiers, such as roads, streets, subdivisions or communities; however, existing schools with complete grade-level organizational change or schools formed by the merger of two or more previously existing schools may continue to bear names which do not conform to the adopted standard.

Individual buildings, rooms, areas within buildings or other structures on school campuses may be named in honor of or in memory of persons who have rendered extraordinary service to the school system.

The Superintendent shall submit a recommended name or limited list of recommended names to the Board of Education for approval.
