Students who have met the requirements for graduation will be allowed to participate in the appropriate commencement proceedings for their academic program provided they abide by the proceedings organized by the school district. It shall be the responsibility of the principal to solicit input from each graduating class regarding the proceedings for their commencement.
Failure of a student to participate in commencement will not be a reason for withholding the student's final progress report or diploma certifying the student's completion of high school.
Any student, at the discretion of the administrator, may be excluded from participating in the graduation ceremony.
