DRIGGS, Idaho (AP) — The top administrator at an eastern Idaho high school is standing behind his decision to drop the school’s Redskins nickname, but is putting on hold plans to remove signs and logos from the school.

Teton County School District 401 Superintendent Monte Woolstenhulme has scheduled a forum next month to gather comment from parents, alumni and residents about the name change at Teton High School. He also said he will seek feedback from leaders of the Shoshone-Bannock Indian Tribes. The decision to delay comes amid criticism of the decision to change the school’s longtime nickname.

A Facebook page called “Save the Redskins” had gathered more than 950 local and national followers since it was created Tuesday. Foes of the change have launched an online petition to keep the name.
