Beaver Dam School District Moves Graduation Date

Seniors in the Beaver Dam School District will no longer be missing out on the last few days of classes. That comes after the school board last night approved changing the graduation date in 2011 to the Sunday following the last day of school. Administrators say the change is needed to maintain a learning environment. Last year the seniors were done with classes the Wednesday before graduation and teachers say once that happened the other kids in school “checked-out” mentally. The school board also set the 2010 graduation date at the high school for June 6th and at the alternative school for June 7th.
