OA School Community,
The district is looking for your thoughts, feedback, and questions regarding the New York State Education Department's directive to remove the use of Native American mascots in public schools.
Please use the following link to submit your input: https://www.k12insight.com/Lets-Talk/DialogueCustom.aspx?k=PK6K81K8Z5LT@WT6F5ZLT@DY7K6BXLT
You can read the NYSED directive here:
According to the letter from the State Education Department, "Should a district fail to affirmatively commit to replacing its Native American name, logo, and/or imagery by the end of the 2022-23 school year, it may be in willful violation of the Dignity Act."
We appreciate the thoughts, feedback, and questions from everyone in our school community. As we navigate the process, the district will continue to ask for input from all stakeholders, community members, and families.
Thanks for your time and input.
