The Alternative School “NAME CHANGE COMMITTEE” met again on January 30, 2018 with the following members present: Mr. Mike Brock, ACAS Board Chair and County Board representative; Mr. Lance Radford, District 2; Mr. Robbie Binniker, District 1; Mr. Harold Kay, District 5 and ACAS Boards of Trustees; Mr. Jimmy Outzs, District 2 and ACAS Board of Trustees; Ms. April Moore, ACAS Behavioral Health counselor; Ms. Jeri Ruble, ACAS Guidance counselor; Ms. Amber DePolito, ACAS student; Mr. Dillingham, ACAS Director.
After discussion, the decision was made to pursue a name change for the Alternative School while remaining true to the established Mission Statement and to solicit input from the various stakeholders to select a new name. The Committee decided to ask each district’s Planning Team member to share this information with the local Boards and/or other staff members for input and suggestions. In whatever manner each district deems appropriate, one proposed school name should be submitted to the ACAS Director who will present all the potential names to the COMMITTEE at the next meeting. Deadline for submission of proposed name changes is Monday, March 19, 2018.
