Have you ever named a school? We are now in the process of naming the online charter school in the Clovis Unified School District in Central California. The naming committee had their first meeting yesterday. The naming guidance provided to the committee included the district Board policy for naming facilities which suggests that the name could be the name of a person, place or theme. Additionally, the committee learned about naming ideas based on the book, Made to Stick and the website, Eat My Words.
Some of the ideas submitted as suggestions for naming the school are as follows:
- Clovis High Tech High
- Clovis Net
- Clovis ONliNe Educational CenTer (CONNECT)
- Teaching Academics Online (TAO)
- Wireless Teachers Teaching Students
- Clovis Charter
- Ansel Adams Charter School
- Clovis Learning Online Charter School (CLOCS)
- Technology Education Learning Online Charter of Clovis (TELOCC)
- CONTACT – Clovis Online Network, Teaching Alternative Curriculum Together
- Super Val e-High
- iCARE (Clovis Academy for Reaching Everyone)
- Pioneer Online High School
What do you think? Any suggestions in how to select a name for an online charter school that will serve students throughout the region?
