The Aspen School District will be interviewing finalists for the vacant elementary school principal position this week.

The board of education for the Aspen school district wants to get it right when asking the community if naming rights to honor donors ought to become policy. Carolyn Sackariason reports.

School board members discussed yesterday how they should proceed with the idea of naming rights to honor donors in a public way. The proposal was first presented by the school district’s fundraising arm, the Aspen Education Foundation. The nonprofit is about to launch a public capital and endowment campaign.

Aspen school board considers naming rights for donors

Mar 24, 2016

  The Aspen School board is considering allowing naming rights to honor donors in a public way. If it chooses to do so, it would mean reversing a decades-old policy. Carolyn Sackariason reports.

The concept was presented to the board recently by the school district’s nonprofit fundraising arm, Aspen Education Foundation. Naming rights has been a contentious issue in the past and has not very gone far.
