Haight Name Selection Process

Name Criteria

Under AUSD policy, a school can be renamed for:


  • Individuals, living or deceased, who have made contributions to the community, county, state, nation or world

  • The geographic area in which the school or building is located

  • Curricular concentration or concepts or approaches to education

Based on these parameters, the renaming committee members decided the school should be named after someone who embodies the following values:


  • Diversity

  • Inclusivity

  • Community leader

  • Involved in education

  • Local connection and/or impact

  • Devoted to civil rights/social justice/equity

The committee also decided that if the school was named after a person, that person should be deceased.

voting process

The submission period for names was open from September 10 to October 12. The committee chose four names from the names that fit the criteria (two submitted by students and two submitted by adults).


Students, families,and staff will vote on those names in a "primary" election on November 6. Students, staff, families, neighbors, and alumni will have a chance to vote between "Haight" and the winner of the primary on November 15. More detail on the names are available in this FAQ

Voter's guide

All students will receive voter guides to learn about the candidate names. The guides are formatted as small booklets that include information on how the elections will work. A voter guide formatted for the web is available here
