Hart board to set process for naming Castaic high school

With the long-proposed Castaic high school project moving closer to reality, the William S. Hart Union High School District board will now look to answer the age-old question: What’s in a name?

During their meeting this Wednesday, board members will review existing policy and set plans in motion to name the school.

Existing district policy says schools, school buildings and athletic fields can be named in honor of a specific person, living or deceased, or to recognize a geographic or municipal area.

The board has the option of appointing a citizens’ advisory committee during the naming process to encourage community participation and review public feedback on potential names.

Almost all of the Hart district’s comprehensive high schools are named after geographic regions or the communities they serve: Canyon, Saugus, Valencia, West Ranch and Golden Valley. The exception is Hart High School, named for silent movie star William S. Hart.

Also named for an individual is the district’s continuation high school, Bowman High School, named for Jereann Bowman.

Castaic high school will eventually be built on a site near Romero Canyon and is scheduled to be open in August 2015.
