Administrative Procedure – Commemorative Recognition
The following are procedures for commemorative recognition and the naming of school facilities. School facilities include buildings, auditoriums, gyms, athletic fields, classrooms, laboratories, corridors, wings of buildings, theaters, libraries, cafeterias, roadways/drives, warehouses, bus
garages, special service areas, press boxes, administrative offices, and elevators. The procedure consists of three steps.
Step One – A form “Request for Commemorative Recognition” is obtained from the principal, completed by the requesting person(s), and returned to the building principal.
Step Two – After review by the principal, it will be forwarded to the Superintendent/Board of Education for consideration.
Step Three – If the Superintendent agrees that consideration should be given to the application, an administrative committee will be formed by the Superintendent consisting of:
3. Parents of Current Students
4. Principal or other Administrator
5. Community Members of Long Standing
The principal will chair the committee and hold meetings regarding the naming of the facility. All deliberations will be confidential. In their deliberations, members of this committee shall seek input from all levels of the staff and the community. Among the duties of the committee will be a decision on how to generate options (names) for the facility. The committee shall be encouraged to seek community input from all areas of the school community when selecting names. It is intended to be an “open” forum.
The committee will make a recommendation to the Superintendent assisting him in the development of a recommendation to the School Board. Final approval will rest with the Board of Education.
