arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board shall name district schools and other district-owned or leased buildings, grounds, and facilities in recognition of entities of community or national significance, geographic areas, natural resources, regional statewide, national or worldwide significance.

The Board encourages community participation in the process of selecting names. A District advisory committee shall be appointed by the Board or District Superintendent to review name suggestions and submit recommendations for the Board's consideration. The Board retains the final authority to select the name(s) of all district facilities and shall consider Board Policy 3290 and the mission statement of the District in the name selection.

(cf. 1229 - Citizen Advisory Committees)

Any name adopted for any new school shall not be so similar to the name of any existing district school as to result in confusion to members of the community.

Before adopting any proposed name, the Board shall hold a public hearing at which members of the public will be given an opportunity to provide input.

(cf. 9320 - Meetings and Notices)

When naming or renaming a district school, building, or facility, the Board may specify the duration for which the name shall be in effect.


Upon request, the Board shall consider planting commemorative trees, erecting monuments, or dedicating buildings, parts of buildings, athletic fields, gardens, or other district facilities, in memory of deceased students, staff members, community members, and benefactors of the district.
