12 LI school districts to decide if they will comply with state's Native American mascot ban by Friday

Friday is the deadline for Long Island districts to decide if they will comply with the state's ban of schools using Native American imagery and names.
A total of 12 Long Island school districts are affected by the mandate.
Amityville and Massapequa have said they will comply, but Massapequa says it will challenge the state ruling in court.
Schools that do not comply could lose state funding.
