(Ottumwa)— Graduation next spring will be held Sunday May 25th at Bridge View Center.

The topic came up for discussion during Monday evening’s Board of Education meeting.  The board opted to keep the current district calendar that lists graduation as May 25th.  Discussion topics included a recent student poll, family travel plans and parent input.

The date came into question after a recent suggestion from Ottumwa High School principal Mark Hanson suggested moving graduation to Friday night.

The graduation dates came up during last Thursday’s forum sponsored by the League of Women voters.  Some questioned why the date was changed.
