Mascot Debate Put On Hold

July 10, 2013 State of Idaho, Teton County, Teton Valley No Comments
Mascot

Don’t look for a decision to be made on the Teton High School mascot in Teton Valley, Idaho anytime soon.  The question was raised last month regarding the political correctness of “Redskins” as the high school mascot.  The school board Monday heard a considerable amount of public comment on the issue which Superintendent Monte Woolstenhulme says pretty much ran the gamut of opinions.  He says there are people who are for the change, those against it, and still others who are neutral.  He said time was allowed for public comments Monday night during the regular school board meeting, and most of those who spoke at that time were opposed to changing the mascot. In the end, he says, it was decided that more time needs to be allowed before making a decision. He says the board want to, “allow community and parents and students and staff members a voice, and a chance to participate in this conversation about this issue of the high school mascot change.” Woolstenhulme says no target date has been set for making the decision.  He says after school is back in session, he plans to meet with the principals and discuss it further with the school board before determining how to proceed and setting a timeline.
