|44. Board Discussion - Mascot Policy and/or Procedure|
Mr. Susin expressed concerns about changes to a mascot and wants a process to prevent an individual group from bringing recommendations forward. He believes that a threshold needs to be considered.
The consensus of the Board was to have further discussion at a later workshop, although Ms. McDougall stated that it should driven from the school level, not that of the Board. Ms. Belford stated she felt it was difficult to grasp just exactly what it is that Mr. Susin wants, but is not opposed to having a conversation. She too agreed with Ms. McDougall that it should be a school decision, not a Board decision.
Mr. Gibbs will work with Mr. Susin on his language intent.
Additional discussion ensued on topics regarding adding a supplemental piece to the curriculum on Harry T. and Harriet Moore. Ms. Belford provided some legislative updates.
