Re: Renaming Facilities or a Portion of a Facility.
Viking Families and Community members,
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that the district has received a request to rename the Valley High School East gymnasium or portion of the gymnasium in honor and recognition of the late Mr. Bruce Kamada.
By Board policy the district must be informed of the possible renaming of a facility. For a period of 60 days, the district will accept other names from the school community. Once the 60-day period has expired, a committee will consider the names submitted.
If the committee reach consensus on the names to be considered (no more than three) they will make a recommendation to the Board of Education through the Superintendent. If the committee cannot reach consensus then the process to rename the facility is concluded and no action will take place.
The 60 days period will start on Friday January 22, 2021 and end on Tuesday March 23, 2021.
Community members are invited to submit letters of support or letters of concerns regarding this request to the Superintendent during the 60-day window. You are also invited to submit the names of other people that you would like the committee to consider. If you are nominating someone else, please follow these instructions:
A request to re-name a facility or portion of a facility after a person shall be in writing and
must include the following:
1. The name or names of the person or persons making the request.
2. A detailed description of the exemplary activities, deeds, or contributions of the person whose name is being considered and how
these activities served as a positive example or role model for students.
