The Board of Trustees for Uinta County School District Number One believes that the successful completion of all requirements for a diploma from the public schools is an achievement that improves the community as well as the individual; therefore, the Board of Trustees wishes to recognize that achievement in a publicly celebrated graduation exercise. Accordingly, appropriate graduation programs may be planned by designated school officials for commencement on the date selected by the Board of Trustees. Elementary and Middle Schools may hold promotional exercises, but formal graduation programs for these grades are prohibited.
Students will be provided an opportunity to work with faculty and administration officials to plan graduation and promotional ceremonies. However, final plans such as outside speakers, student dress, where, when, and in what manner the promotional or graduation ceremonies will be held will be subject to approval by the school administration and the Board of Trustees. The attire for Elementary and Middle School promotional activities will be clean and pressed school clothing, not formal attire. The attire, under a graduation cap and gown, for High School graduation activities will be determined by the building principal and senior sponsors to monitor established attire and behavior standards and exclude from graduation activities those students not exhibiting the established standards. The cap and gown for High School graduation will be recommended by the students with final approval resting with the building principal.
