MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Mukwonago Area School District won't get rid of their Indians nickname despite a court ruling supporting the state's order to drop it.
An area resident filed a complaint alleging the nickname was offensive in 2010. The state Department of Public Instruction ordered the district to drop it.
District parents challenged the order but the 2nd District Court of Appeals ruled last week they have no standing.
Superintendent Paul Strobel says the district has asked Republican lawmakers to strip DPI of its power to order schools drop nicknames. He also notes the parents plan to ask the state Supreme Court to take the case.
Rep. Steve Nass, a Whitewater Republican, is pondering bills that would repeal DPI"s authority or force a complainant to prove a nickname discriminates against a student.
