Minneapolis teachers union pushes for more students to be included in graduation


A group of teachers and parents is calling on Minneapolis Public Schools to ease its requirements to allow more students with outstanding class credits to participate in graduation ceremonies in June.

Supporters say the pandemic has made it harder for some students to keep up, and the commencement ceremony is an important ritual that should be available to seniors who plan to complete their classes in summer school.

A petition sponsored by the Minneapolis teachers union requests that the district allow all seniors who are within 2.25 credits of graduation requirements to be included in this year's ceremony. Under current district rules, students can walk at commencement if they are within 0.75 credits of those necessary to graduate.
