Remember, Graduation is certainly an exciting event for the graduates, but more important, it is a time for the Governing Board to ceremoniously honor the graduates and teaching staff. At no time should the formality of the Graduation Ceremony be violated. Your behavior is a direct reflection of you, your school, and your family.
The graduation robes signify your class unity. The ceremony is the Governing Board's forum to represent the community honoring the graduates of Clovis West. This is a formal occasion. Therefore, all graduates are expected to behave in a manner that respects the formality of the ceremony. A student may be removed for any action that draws undue attention to an individual. Fireworks, noise makers, beach balls, frisbees, cell phones or similar inappropriate distractions are strictly forbidden and will be confiscated at the entrance by staff and officers. Throwing of hats and other means of disrupting the ceremony will not be allowed.
Remember, it is a privilege, not a right to participate in the Graduation Ceremony. Clovis West is under no obligation to allow anyone who violates the rules and procedures in the handbook or any other school district policy, to participate in the Graduation ceremony. Violators will be removed from the ceremony and will receive their diplomas at a later date. This includes students who throw their hats. Appropriate consequences will follow, and the diploma will not be given that night. The school will determine when during the summer and under what conditions the diploma will ultimately be given.
