Guided by the Wiseburn USD District Assurances and with input from an advisory committee and the community, the WUSD School Board unanimously voted during the January 25 board meeting to rename all of Wiseburn’s TK-8 schools.
Now, the citizens advisory committee and community move onto the next stage of the renaming process and seek to determine the type of name, as Dr. Blake Silvers shared during the April 20 school board meeting. In this stage, the committee and community will have an opportunity to share feedback that will inform the WUSD School Board as they consider all options. District team members will also explore the costs of the renaming process and continue to update the community, committee, and school board.
Currently, the committee and community are invited to share their thoughts on the type of name they would like Wiseburn schools to have. The three options are:
- Individual: Named after a person who has made significant contributions locally (to the school community) or globally (state/US/world)
- Geographic: Named after the geographic area in which the school or building is located
- Value/Characteristic: Named after an aspirational value or characteristic
