P 7250 Naming Facilities/Events

The Board of Education shall approve the official names of all school buildings/events. In selecting names for school buildings and district related events, the Board may consider recommendations from school staff, students, parents, citizens or appointed committees. Any proposal to name or rename a school building or event shall be submitted to the Superintendent of Schools.

All signage, including plaques, and or lettering for buildings/events, will be approved by the Board of Education. The Board of Education reserves the right to direct how names are displayed on facilities.

All named property is and remains property of the Southland C-9 School District.

As with time, the School District changes. It may become necessary to modify, relocate, tear down, eliminate, or terminate named building buildings, property or events. In the event such actions are necessary, the Board of Education will convene to discuss the proposed change.

The Board of Education reserves the right to retain or change any names assigned to any school building, property or event. Even where a donation is made in exchange for naming rights, the Board may terminate the Naming Rights Agreement, without refund, if the namee engages in conduct which is inconsistent with the image and mission of the District. Such conduct includes, but is not limited to: association/advocacy of a hate group; use of controlled substances; multiple driving under the influence; conviction of a criminal act or a determination that the name has been found substantiated for child sexual or physical abuse.
