Jefferson Middle School Renaming Process
Announcement: Public Hearing Scheduled for Dec. 6, 5:30 p.m.
The Ad Hoc Committee will hold a public hearing on the four remaining proposals (see below). Instructions for registering to speak or to submit a written registration can be found on the Board of Education's webpage.
The Thomas Jefferson Middle School community made a formal request of the Superintendent and the Board of Education at the Regular BOE meeting on February 28, 2022, to begin the process for renaming the school. No specific proposal was advanced.
This web page has been created to keep the community informed of our work as we progress through the renaming process.
The first step was to seek official proposals from the community that meet the criteria found in Board Policy 6700, titled “Proposal for Naming a MMSD Building or Facility.” The window for submitting proposals closed on April 8, 2022.
We will be using typical communication channels to keep our school community and district informed -- including our newsletters, website, Facebook and Twitter, etc.
Targeted communications will be sent to the Jefferson student body and the Jefferson community at large, including members of the Parent-Teacher-Student Organization.
