NAMING OF FACILITIES
The Central Community School Board believes naming a school is a matter of great importance. The School Board shall not be influenced in its decision by personal prejudice or favoritism, political pressure, or temporary popularity in choosing a name. No school, school building, or other public building shall be named after any living person. However, a street that is maintained by the School Board and that is not a state or federal highway, or any existing athletic facilities at a school within the School Board’s jurisdiction may be named in honor of a living person.
The Superintendent shall be responsible for soliciting names from staff, students, and the community and shall prepare procedures to follow in naming school properties. These procedures may include a timetable for the naming process in order to lessen any community or factional pressures that may build up when a selection is delayed or seems uncertain.
