At the January 16 Strategic Transition task force meeting, the group reviewed the process utilized by the district when selecting colors and a mascot for Sheyenne High School. After review and discussion, the task force recommended the following process, which was approved by the School Board at their February 11 meeting:
Students in grades 4 - 7 from the new attendance area will be given the opportunity to submit two mascots (with rationale) and one color combination.
A community committee will narrow down the student submissions for the School Board (5 - 10 of each).
The School Board narrows down the committee recommendations to two of each.
The students will vote on the two recommendations from the School Board. The mascot and school colors will be selected through majority vote of the students and then authorized at a Board meeting.
This process is anticipated to kick-off immediately after the schools are officially named, which would provide colors and a mascot by the middle of April.
