Naming New Facilities

When naming a new facility, the Board shall consider criteria to ensure the name is meaningful and appropriate, including the following:

1.         A facility may be named after a street or local, state, or national geographic area if such a name has significance and does not lead to confusion.

2.         A facility may be named after a prominent person or public official who has served the District or the community with distinction, a person who has gained recognition in education or the arts, or a national hero whose name shall lend prestige and status to an institution of learning and whose life and achievements shall serve as a positive role model for students who shall attend the particular school.

3.         A facility may be named after a person who donated significant property or funded endowed scholarships to the District whose name shall lend prestige and status to an institution of learning and whose life and achievements shall serve as a positive role model for the students who shall attend the particular school.

4.         District facilities may be named in a descriptive manner to identify their purpose or location, e.g., Administration Building, KISD Career Center, Student Services, or Technology Services Center.

5.         To avoid confusion, names for schools shall not be duplicated in central Texas in Bell, Burnet, Coryell, Falls, Lampasas, McLennan, Milam, and Williamson counties.
