Hoosic Valley CSD Mascot Updates 2022-23

Hoosic Valley Central School District

The New York State Department of Education and the Board of Regents have recently issued a memo and proposed new regulation that will prohibit the use of Indigenous names, mascots, and logos by public schools in New York.  Due to this forthcoming regulation, our School District and School Board has begun the process to get feedback from the community and our students in order to formulate a plan.  The issues surrounding this change were discussed at the December 1, 2022 School Board Meeting and again at a community forum held on January 9, 2023.

Updates will be made to this page regularly as more information is provided by the State Education Department.  The future plans for the District mascot and other relevant information will also be posted to this page for your information.
