Linden Community Schools is seeking public input to name the Linden Middle School gymnasium.
According to Board Policy 7250, Naming of Schools and School Facilities, the Linden Board of Education recognizes the prominence and permanence of a school or school facility in the community and the importance of establishing appropriate selection criteria and procedures that ensure students, staff, parents, and community participation is part of the process in selecting a name.
The Board will consider names consistent with other school names at the elementary, middle or high school level as appropriate. The Board will refrain from naming schools or facilities after individuals who are living or recently deceased.
Names of deceased persons who are clearly identifiable and widely recognized as having made outstanding contributions to the community, state, nation or world will be considered. The board will also consider the geographical location of the school or facility, the proximity of the school or facility to recognize features of the area, valued concepts or principles and relevant historical events.

All submitted suggestions will be reviewed by the Naming Schools and School Facilities Committee. A recommendation from the committee will be made to the board for consideration.
