Graduation ceremonies for Class of 2011: Is it fair?

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Finally, Plainfield School District has dates and times for graduation ceremonies for all of its four high schools.

Here you go:

Plainfield East will hold its first-ever graduation ceremony at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 21; Plainfield North and Plainfield High School -- Central Campus will hold their graduations at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 21; and Plainfield South will hold its graduation at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 22.

From the e-mail I got from folks, you're not happy with this schedule - saying all ceremonies should be on Sundays so athletes can attend, too.

That's what Bolingbrook and Romeoville high schools do.

And, it's not just a Plainfield issue. Not everyone is happy with how their school districts handle graduation. In many cases, it's because athletes get excluded if they compete. They have to choose between competing or the ceremony.

Any thoughts?
