The committee must include at least two members who live in the district which sends children to the school.

If practicable, the committee submitting suggested names for a school should also provide suggestions for dedication. Schools and/or parts of schools may be dedicated to:

 

1.    Worthy public or private citizens.

2.    Persons who have made notable contributions to the field.

The person being honored by the dedication may be living or dead.  Administrative regulations may be developed by the superintendent when in the naming or dedicating of a school it is determined that special direction is necessary for the implementation of this policy. The school committee will make the final decision on whether to dedicate a school or parts of schools.
