Public Hearing on MMSD Race Based Mascot Policy

Monday, May 18 6:00pm

Doyle Administartion Building

545 W. Dayton St. Madison, WI

Board of Education Public Hearing on Monday, May 18th at 6:00pm at the Doyle Administration Building, 545 W. Dayton St., McDaniels Auditorium. This is a hearing on Madison Metropolitan School District's recent policy proposal regarding the race-based mascot and logo issue. MMSD will be holding a Board of Education public hearing regarding the newly created policy proposal that requires our school district to refrain from playing other school district athletic teams that have an American Indian mascot or logo. This policy will also require our school district to ensure that all of our students will have a safe and healthy learning environment. This means that our school within our own district will be required to have students, staff, and faculty to not wear attire that depicts race-based mascots and/or logos. If a student or staff or faculty member is seen wearing such attire that person or persons will be asked to turn their shirt, etc... inside out or be sent home to change. This is a unique approach and stance on this issue, as MMSD is the only school in the state who has taken this strong of a stance on the issue. There are however other school districts with similar policies in place.
