Indian River Decides If Seniors Can Decorate Graduation Caps

Posted: Updated:

Indian River Central School officials have made a decision on whether or not students will be allowed to decorate their caps for graduation.

The answer is yes.

At a school board meeting Thursday night, students made their case for changing the school's long-standing tradition of not decorating their graduation caps.

Students expressed their opinions on why they think they should be allowed to decorate their graduation caps.

Seniors collected 103 signatures from fellow classmates and presented their petition to the board in an attempt to change the rules.

On Friday, school officials announced the students have their blessing.

"We wanted to acknowledge that the students made a well thought out presentation and a way to ensure that the caps were appropriate," said Superintendent Jim Kettrick.

The school board asks graduates to make sure the decorations are upbeat and positive.

The embellishments must be done in advance and have school approval.

Kettrick said the school might set aside a time for students to decorate their caps as a group.
