Public Consultation and Policy Feedback

The Upper Grand District School Board recognizes that the names of schools and other board facilities need to be distinctive and reflective of the communities they serve.  The policy and procedures for 303 – Naming of Schools and Board Facilities have been updated with additional naming criteria aimed to foster the selection of appropriate names for all Upper Grand facilities and designated areas.  The processes for selecting a new name and for considering a renaming are also outlined in greater detail.

This policy is important to students, staff, school councils, parents, and community members because a name chosen for a school, other board facility, or designated areas within can help to further develop an identity for the community it serves.
