On Wednesday, the Brentwood Union School District announced it was is seeking community input for school names of its alternative Education/Independent Study Virtual Academy.
According to a letter that went out today, families may choose either the Homeschool pathway or the Independent Study pathway (more info).
“We need your help to find a perfect name for what is essentially our twelfth school,” said Scott Dudek, President of the Board. “We believe it is essential for each of our schools to have their own identity and pride. We encourage you to participate in the process by submitting names for us to consider.”
The Homeschool program started last year, and the Independent Study Virtual Academy was launched over the summer. Currently, there are approximately 200 students in the program according to Superintdent Dana Eaton.
Recommendations must be submitted in writing no later than September 30, 2021. Names will have to fit within the Board of Education specific requirements which include:
- Individuals, living or deceased, who have made outstanding contributions to the school district or community.
- Individuals, living or deceases, who have made contributions of state, national, or worldwide significance
- The geographic or historical significance associated with the area in which the school or building is located.
