School officials said in a board meeting, the school would no longer associate with the Wayne County Fair as long as the sale of the confederate flag is permitted.

According to the school’s board meeting, Wooster Schools feels selling confederate flag merchandise at the fair sends a message that minorities are not welcome.

The school’s board of education will vote on the proposal on Tuesday.

If it were to pass, the school projects and the band will not be part of the fair this year.

The Wayne County Fair is set to begin on Sept. 12.
