How should the schools handle graduation?

KMIZ–The Jefferson City Board of Education meet Monday for the first time since Gov. Mike Parson made the decision to close school buildings across the state for the rest of the school year to fight COVID-19.

One question was about events, such as graduation and prom. The district still has plans to hold graduation on May 17th, but Linthicum said that was probably not realistic.

The district sent out a survey to parents about how they would like to see graduation handled during this crisis. Families were asked to rank the following:

  • Cancel graduation
  • Keep graduation as long as we can have it sometime in May
  • Keep graduation as long as we can have it by the end of June
  • Keep graduation even if we need to have it in July
  • Keep graduation but put it online for students and families to participate remotely
