Discussion

The School Advisory Committee at Viera High School voted on March 21, 2023, to request approval from the School Board to move forward with the process to gather community input into the proposal to dedicate Viera High School’s Track to Mike Acosta and Brittany Steufert.  On May 9, 2023, the School Board voted to allow the school to follow the administrative procedures in Board Policy 7250  - Commemoration of School Facilities, and collect community input into the request. 

In an effort to gather input from all stakeholders, a website was created allowing stakeholders to both submit comments and review all comments submitted.  Additionally, three community meetings were held to gather input.

Recommendation

Please review the information provided and support the request to allow Viera High School to name their Track for Mike Acosta and Brittany Steufert.  

 

Good Cause: Viera High would like to have the naming completed with ample time to brand the track with the name and allow for a celebration of the renaming prior to the start of track season in January.
