Marion County High School students will be graduating on a Friday evening this year.
The MCHS Site-Based Decision Making Council voted to set graduation at 7 p.m. May 29 during its meeting Thursday, according to Principal Mike Abell.
“We knew any way we go, some people were going to be unhappy,” Abell said.
The district conducted a phone survey of parents, asking if they would prefer to have graduation Friday evening, May 29, or Saturday morning, May 30. Abell said about 60 percent of the respondents preferred Friday evening.
