Memorials and Naming of District Facilities (FC)
As places designed primarily to support learning, school sites should not serve as the main venue for permanent memorials for students or staff. Permanent memorials for deceased students or staff shall be limited in form to perpetual awards or scholarships for district students.
Any permanent memorials in existence before the adoption of this policy can only be removed by board action.
Naming of Facilities
The board will consider requests from school and community groups to name an athletic or other school activity facility, building, or a portion thereof for a person provided the proposed name has special significance and/or the person has made an outstanding contribution to the school or the school system and has been deceased for at least ten (10) years. The board shall consider naming requests after they are recommended by the superintendent.
Any memorial in existence at the time of the adoption of this policy, or, in the future, whether in compliance with this policy or not, may be removed five years after the death of the student/staff member and offered to the family.
