Clayton County Public Schools Elementary School of the Arts

Location: 1905 Walt Stephens Road, Jonesboro GA 30236 (New wing of M.D. Roberts Middle School Fine Arts Magnet)

The Clayton County Board of Education recognizes that the official name selected for a school building or facility is a vital factor in the public image of the school system.  Therefore, the first consideration of the Board of Education in name selection shall be the honor and integrity, which the name will reflect upon the school and/or facility. 

While it shall be the Board's sole responsibility to select and assign a name to each new unnamed educational facility or, as conditions may warrant, rename an educational facility, individuals and organizations of Clayton County are encouraged to submit names to the Board. 

School Facilities may be named after persons subject to the following:
1.  Consideration shall be given to persons who have gained local, state or national prominence and to individuals who have made significant contributions of service to the Clayton County Public School System.
2.  Names of living persons will not be used unless the Board chairman, or his or her designee, contacts the person to seek written verification that he or she does not object to the proposed naming or renaming of the school in his or her honor.

Names duplicating in whole, or in part, the name of an existing Clayton County School shall be ineligible for selection.

Deadline to Submit entries: April 24, 2018
