940 Naming District Facilities
As a general policy, the Board of Education will name all schools after the name of the geographic location and/or section that they serve.
As general policy, the Board of Education will name major facilities (e.g. athletic complexes, fine arts complexes etc.) in accordance with the name or nickname of the school (e.g. Plymouth High School Athletic Field or Panther Gymnasium). If the Board of Education chooses to name a major facility after an individual it should be someone that has made a significant contribution to the Plymouth School District or the community. The Board of Education may consider naming the facility after an individual still living only if he or she grants permission to do so.)
The Board of Education will consider exchanging naming rights to a major facility for a significant financial contribution in association with an organization, individual, or corporation.
The Board of Education recognizes that many people have made exceptional contributions to the Plymouth School District. Having a major facility named after an individual should require extraordinary contribution and should be a rare occurrence. Other ways to recognize individuals that have been important to the Plymouth School District community are available through the Recognition Policy.
Each naming request, with or without a significant financial offer, will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Naming requests or offers should be made to the superintendent of schools. The Board of Education Policy Committee will consider requests or offers, seek input from others, and make any appropriate recommendation to the Board of Education for final approval.
Facilities such as hallways or individual rooms shall not be named.
