Jefferson Middle School Renaming Process

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.

Public Information via BoardDocs

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.

Meeting Notice

Ad Hoc Committee meeting dates/times, agendas, and minutes are published on BoardDocs.

Renaming Proposals

The timeframe to submit renaming proposals was March 7 through April 8, 2022. During that time period, 42 proposals were submitted. The proposal submissions are included below. *Note, on May 10 the Renaming Committee voted to not consider proposals of people not deceased, as those do not meet Board policy. Five proposals were removed from the list below, however, you can still review all submissions at BoardDocs.

Public Input

Public input will continue through this web page for the entire process. Meetings of the Ad Hoc Committee will be publicly noticed and broadcast via the MMSD Board of Education YouTube channel in the same way that all other open Board meetings are shared.
