PARADISE, Calif. - Paradise Unified School District Board held a meeting tonight about Paradise High School's upcoming graduation ceremony.
The board had two different plans on the table.
"Plan A" was a plan created by the board which details a ceremony which allowed the students to walk across a stage.
There would've been an eight person limit per student, but only folks from the same household could be considered.
Despite careful and thourough planning, Butte County Public Health deemed this gathering, which would total roughly 130 people in attendance, a violation under current local health guidelines.
One member of the meeting said, "I believe that we made a strong plan that ensured the safety of our students; however, I am concerned that the circumstances have changed from the time that we created that plan to the position that we're in now.
She added, "I would have some concerns moving forward at this point."
"Plan B" aligns itself with Butte County's recommended outline of having a drive-thru ceremony. Other schools in the county have chosen this route.
While many liked the measures "Plan A" had, the board voted unanimously in favor of the county-recommended plan.
The board did mention that if county guidelines were to loosen before the scheduled June 1-2 ceremony date, the staff would adjust the setting accordingly.
