Your input is requested. Newport-Mesa Unified School District has received a recommendation to name the Newport Harbor High School pool after long standing Newport Harbor High School coach Bill Barnett. The NMUSD Board Policy 7310 (naming of school facilities) requires us to collect feedback from the community. We are asking you to provide feedback on this recommendation. 

Coach Barnett was the water polo coach for both boys and girls and won many league, CIF and State titles and has been recognized for his accomplishments. Coach Barnett coached many athletes who have gone on to compete collegiately and in the U.S. Olympics. We have several letters of support for this recommendation. A committee will use this information to make a recommendation to the Board of Education in accordance with the criterion set in Board Policy 7310 for Naming of Facilities.  For more information on Coach Bill Barnett, please see attached.
