Elementary School #1 Naming Committee: Participation Request Form
If you would like to participate as a member of the Urbandale CSD Naming Committee for our first new elementary school that will be built on the Olmsted Elementary site and open in Fall 2021, please complete and submit this short form by September 16, 2019.
Our aim is to have the Naming Committee include a diverse representation of community stakeholders. Ideally, we’re hoping to have our committee structured in the following manner: Parks & Rec (1), City of Urbandale (1), Chamber (1), Parents from previous Olmsted (2) and Jensen (2), Community members (3), Historical Society (1), Staff Members from previous Olmsted (2) and Jensen (2), and Merle Hay Neighborhood Association (1) for a total of approximately 16 members.
We will host two Naming Committee meetings on the following dates: Thursday, October 3, 2019 and Wednesday, November 13, 2019. Meetings will take place from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Urbandale CSD Administrative Office 11152 Aurora Avenue, Urbandale 50322. You must be able to attend both meetings in order to participate on the committee.
Naming of our first new elementary school is an important decision which is why we've created a Code of Cooperation for how our Naming Committee will collaborate throughout this process. By submitting this form, you agree to abide by this Code of Cooperation:
- I will respectfully listen to the viewpoints of committee members.
- I will maintain an open mindset with a balanced approach for selecting a name.
- I will take all viewpoints, of committee members and non-committee members, into consideration in my recommendation for selecting a name.
- I will consider the longevity of the name (knowing it will be in place over the next 50 years) when selecting a name.
- I will uphold a willingness to collaborate with committee members with the intention of selecting a name.
I have read and agree to uphold the Code of Cooperation as outlined above.
Please share your association with the school district (select all that apply).
