Building Naming Survey Available

(Date Posted 6/1/2018)

With the reconfiguration of our schools coming in the Fall of 2019 we will not only open two new buildings, we will also open two virtually new schools.  Olympic Middle School and Oakland Bay Jr. High will each see a 100% new student population at the beginning of the 2019 school year, and potentially 50% new staff.

These changes will bring new focus and opportunity to each building.  We, as a community, are now being given a chance to examine the building grade band designations.   After many internal discussions with school and district staff, the district would like to you to share your thoughts about the possible naming changes for these schools.  We want the names of our schools to be recognizable, enduring, and reflective of the age of the students served.

We are presenting four options for you to consider. Please select the option that you believe would best represent our Grades 5 to 8 schools.   Per district facility naming policy, recommendations will be presented to the School Board, by the end of June for a final decision.

Thank you for helping us as we consider the possibilities.  You will find a link to the naming survey below.


Mid-Grade Naming Survey

Encuesta de nomenclatura de grado medio

Con la reconfiguracion de nuestras escuelas llegando en el Otono de 2019 no solo abriremos dos nuevos edificios, también abriremos  virtualmente dos escuelas . Olympic Middle School y Oakland Bay Jr. High verán cada una un 100% de poblacion nueva de estudiantes comenzando el ano escolar de 2019, y potencialmente 50% de personal nuevo

Estos cambios traerá nuevo enfoque y oportunidad a cada edificio. Nosotros, como comunidad, tenderemos la oportunidad de examinar las designaciones de los grados escolares de cada edificio. Después de varias discusiones internas con la escuela y el distrito escolar, el distrito quisiera que usted comparta los posible cambios de nombres para estas escuelas. Queremos que los nombres de las escuelas sean reconocibles, durables y que reflejen la edad de los estudiantes que sirven.

Estamos presentando cuatro opciones para que usted considere. Por favor seleccione las opción que usted crea que represente las escuelas con grados de 5 a 8. De acuerdo a la política de nombramiento de edificios del distrito, las recomendaciones serán presentadas a la Mesa Directiva Escolar para el final de Junio para una decision final.   

Gracias por ayudarnos mientras consideramos posibilidades.
