The school administration shall establish a procedure whereby the wishes of the community served by the school, including parents and students, may be made known to the Board.
School names may be geographic in nature (that is, bearing the name of the community, a geographic area they serve; or the name of a street). The name may be that of a person whose name serves as an inspiration to students and the community. The Board also wishes to avoid names that might indicate a bias, or result from an individual’s temporary popularity.
A new school shall be named as soon as its construction has become a financial reality, the site has been selected, and the architect appointed.
Schools shall not be renamed unless the current name becomes obsolete due to such factors as a change in attendance area or level served; or a change in a geographic place name.
