Reinstate the changes made to the graduation program to allow Regina Public Schools Students to have a full graduation banquet
The changes made to the graduation program of schools across the Regina Public School Board are outraging parents and students alike, as a key component of the program has been taken away from students. The graduation banquet has been removed from the program. Students were given poor reasons of justification to the alterations, all of which are easily rectified situations that have a large array of solutions.
The grad banquet has been an important part of the graduation process for students, parents, and teachers for a number of years and the changes made to this fundamental principle have been received within the community as unfair, unjustified, and upsetting.
The purpose of this petition is to convince the Regina Public School Board to adopt a handful of solutions to the issues they brought up in order to reinstate the banquet, such as rescheduling the event to accommodate all students, allowing, encouraging, and supporting fundraising for families who can't afford it, and enforcing guidelines to prevent incidents at the event that may cause concern. Putting these solutions in place will create an opening to bring the grad banquet back in to place.
