Has the graduation date and place changed for Lawrence and Free State high schools for May 2006? I haven't seen anything in the newspaper about it and I heard it was going to be at Haskell - the same date as the Kansas University graduation. Could you verify that please?
Yes. Due to calendar adjustments, the graduation date has been changed to May 21, 2006. This is the same day as the KU graduation, but the times have been set to make it more convenient for people who plan on attending both high school and KU graduations, said Rick Gammill, the school district's director of special operations, transportation and safety. The Free State High graduation is set for noon and the Lawrence High graduation is set for 4:30 p.m. Kansas University's procession begins at 2 p.m. The high school graduations will take place at Haskell Indian Nations University.
