Public Forum for Mascot Discussion
Posted on 12/20/2022
The Board of Education of the Hoosic Valley Central School District and Superintendent Jim Buhrmaster would like to invite any interested students and community members to a Public Forum on Monday January 9 at 6:30 in the High School Cafeteria to hear a presentation on the new regulations regarding mascots and provide some time for you to share your thoughts.

The New York State Department of Education and the Board of Regents have informed schools, with Native American Mascots or imagery, that they will need to retire these mascot names and imagery very soon. A presentation has been put together to explain the new regulations, give the historical and legal background and share the perspectives of recognized native american tribes. The rest of our evening will be organized so that our students and community members can share their thoughts and ideas with the school district.

Who: Interested students and community members
What: Community Forum to discuss the new regulations on school mascots
When: Monday January 9th, 6:30 p.m. (Snow date of Tuesday January 10th)
Where: Hoosic Valley High School Cafeteria
