Rochester Public Schools is building a new elementary school, part of our 2019 referendum plan. Situated in the Boulder Ridge area off of Granite Drive NW and Overland Drive NW, this new elementary school will be the District's 17th building to serve students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade.
Here is a reminder of where we are at in the process:
✔ 1. Community members will submit names between October 19 - November 1, 2020 (at 11:59 PM). There were three categories and specific criteria each name needed to meet to be considered to move to the next round.
✔ 2. A volunteer group of individuals from the Facilities Task Force and the Elementary and Middle School Design Teams reviews the names that meet the categories and criteria in early November.
3. The community will have a chance to rank their favorite names from five between November 16 - 29, 2020.
4. The School Board will receive the top two community recommendations and then vote on the official name of the school in December 2020.
