Dear KLSD Community,
Last night, I told our Board that a mascot transition would not require any additional funding in next year’s budget. Any funds above and beyond what we typically spend on uniforms, maintenance of the gym floor, etc., would be found within existing budget and would not take away from any educational opportunities for our students.
Our Board unanimously accepted my recommendation last night, and, as a result, the decision to retire the Indians mascot has now been made. At our next meeting, on November 21, I hope to describe a process and a timeline by which a new mascot will be selected and the current mascot respectfully retired.
