The School Committee recognizes that the death of a student, member of the staff, or prominent community member is deeply felt by the school community. As places designed primarily to support learning, school sites should not serve as the main venue for permanent memorials.

    Permanent memorials within the schools shall be limited in form to perpetual awards or scholarships.

    Any permanent memorials in existence before the adoption of this policy can only be removed by a vote of the School Committee.
