New Elementary School Naming Process 

  • Suggested names will be solicited via the district’s and schools’ websites and email system using this Google Form.  Anyone is welcome to suggest a name and it will be considered if it is accompanied by a clear rationale for consideration.  Names without rationale will not be considered.  
  • Suggested names/rationale are due by January 31, 2020, at 3 pm, using the form linked in the previous bullet.
  • A naming committee will be formed consisting of: a parent from Discovery, Hedden, Endeavour, a teacher from Discovery, Hedden, Endeavour, Amy Mittelstaedt (Principal at Endeavour/Future Principal at new elementary school), Elaine Smith (Director of Teaching-Learning-Innovation) and Jeff Nelson (Assistant Superintendent).
  • The parents will be selected by lot. Depending on teacher interest, we'll either select or draw names.  Principals will solicit parent names from each school.
  • The naming committee will pare the suggested school names down to 8-10 names to be shared back with the community via website/google form for community input and ranking.
  • The naming committee will reconvene to finalize 3-5 school names for the board to consider.
  • The board will make the final name selection. Our committee’s goal is to have the final names to the school board by the February board meeting.
