7250 - COMMEMORATION AND NAMING OF SCHOOL FACILITIES

Commemoration

From time-to-time, the Board of Education may wish to commemorate a school or District facility (gymnasium, swimming pool, athletic field, etc.) by means of a plaque, naming the facility after a person, or some other honor. Such commemoration should be reserved only for those individuals who have made a significant contribution to the enhancement of education generally or the District in particular or to the well-being of the District, community, State or nation.

Any employee of the District thus honored must be deceased or no longer employed by the District prior to the Board's selection of his/her name for commemoration honor.

This shall be subject to review at the beginning of each decade and reserves the right not to continue the commemorative.

Sale of Naming Rights

The District may sell the right to name particular facilities owned by the District.

All such naming rights shall be done pursuant to a contract, which must be approved by the Board.

Any naming contract shall not extend for more than five (5) years.

No naming contract shall be approved for companies or individuals that market items which are inappropriate or illegal for minors to use (e.g., alcohol, tobacco, etc.)

All such contracts shall contain a provision that the naming rights revert immediately to the District upon expiration of the contract or upon any material breach of the naming contract by the purchaser.

All such contracts shall contain a provision that the contract is immediately terminated upon the declaration of bankruptcy by the purchaser, and shall not become an asset of the debtor.
