School Mascot Naming Process

  1. The District will have a suggestion period of 3 weeks (5/14 - 6/1) for staff, students, and public to suggest a mascot name for Imperial Cross Elementary School.
  2. After the suggestion period, the school site councils from each school will review the suggestion list and submit their top choice to the Superintendent.
  3. The Superintendent will have the staff vote on the suggestions from the five school site councils.
  4. The top three suggestions from the staff vote will be forwarded to School Board.
  5. The School Board holds the authority to make the final decision on the school mascot. The Board may select a name from the staff survey or a mascot name they feel is appropriate.
