FF - Naming Facilities
Re-adopted: 8/13/97, 11/21/05, 10/28/2020, 7/13/22
A district facility will be named by location whenever possible. A district facility may be named for an individual person who has been outstanding in educational endeavors or who has worked to improve schools and educational programs in the community and/or in the state. Such a person must be retired from active participation in educational activities.
A name may be presented by petition, by chosen committees or by other representative groups in the area. The naming of any and all school facilities and mascots is the responsibility of the Board which shall be the sole determiner of the criteria used to select names. Once named, a school facility's name or its mascot can be changed only by a unanimous vote of the Board after two readings of a proposal. The Board has the final decision in naming a district facility.
