Rock Hill Schools Graduation Attendance Expectations

The three Rock Hill Schools will have graduation on Saturday, June 6, 2009. Attendance expectations will be as they have been since 1999, the first year I participated as a member of the Board of Trustees. These are posted on the district web site ( Graduation Expectations ), are printed on each ticket required for entry (Rock Hill High and South Pointe tickets are on the left), and will be read at the beginning of the graduation ceremony. Never-the-less, there will always be a few who prove they are descended from a lower form of life. Since 1999, I'd say about 0.1% of those attending have disrespected the decorum (pretty good by today's standards). There was negative publicity when we first implemented these expectations and then again last year when radio entertainer Rush Limbaugh took up the cause for the "rebel rousers" (click here for those comments: Rush Comments). I hope Rush didn't have all the facts - Civil disobediance has never been one of my conservative values.
