Joshua approves new logo

Owl-star logo may adorn helmets, letter jackets

The Joshua ISD school board decided Monday to accept an owl-star design as the official logo of the district, Superintendent Ray Dane said.

Fort Worth advertising company Balcom Agency designed the logo, using the Joshua High School mascot, and submitted several other suggestions for the district over the past two months.

The logo will probably be used on sports helmets, caps, letter jackets, letterhead and business cards. But it might not end up on everything, Dane said.

“I can’t tell you where it’s going to be, but that will become the district identity, and we’re going to begin to use that in all sorts of places,” he said.

The district was looking to create a fresh identity that could be embraced by all of the district’s organizations, from the district’s athletic booster club to the marching band.

“We still have to develop guidelines for use,” he said. “It may not be on a helmet, but it could be.”

The board also adopted an official student expression policy, at the suggestion of the Texas Association of School Boards.

The board had a choice between TASB’s policy and a policy suggestion from the state.

“I understand we’re probably going to end up changing it some, but because we needed one before school started, that’s the one we went with,” Dane said.

In other news, the board:

• Approved bids for security equipment for district schools.

• Extended a contract with Durham School Services for the district’s bus transportation.

• Named Chris Ohlsen as the district’s delegate to the Texas Association of School Boards’ Assembly on Sept. 29 in Dallas. David Taylor is the alternate delegate.

• Endorsed Dr. Ray Braswell to the TASB Board of Directors.

• Changed the Aug. 31 board meeting to Sept. 27.
