The school system doesn’t have an official mascot, although it has long competed as the Warriors.
At its Monday meeting, the Waukee school board voted 5-0 to approve guidelines for the colors and shape of the W that represent the district. Officials said the action shows that the W will be a unifying symbol for the district. Because of a growing student population, Waukee will likely open a new high school in the next few years, the Register said.
The style guide approved by the board on left open the discussion what a mascot should look like. Some board members said they would like administrators to gain feedback about the mascot from middle school students during the next few months.
The district's board briefs released Tuesday said: "The mascot was not recommended for approval. The board was asked to discuss how they would like administration to proceed regarding the mascot, and was asked to approve the logo style guide presented. The board determined they would like administration to continue the work of identifying a new mascot."
