OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - The Shawnee Mission school board voted in favor of a new policy that will remove what it calls all derogatory mascots. Under this new policy, mascots at Shawnee Mission North High, Shawanoe Elementary, Rushton Elementary and Belinder Elementary will all be retired and replaced by more inclusive and culturally sensitive mascots.
