(AP) - A California school district has decided to give up its Redskins team mascot.
The district announced this week that it will form a committee to select a new mascot for the high school. The school board plans to select from a list of finalists by the end of June.
California passed a bill outlawing the Redskins name in October and gave schools until Jan. 1, 2017 to choose a new mascot.
The school district had enlisted the help of the Tule River tribe to lobby against the bill.
