    Wichita USD 259 said they are moving forward with plans for in-person graduation ceremonies as long as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. USD 259 Superintendent Alicia Thompson updated school board members during a meeting Monday. 

    Members of the Student Advisory Council told administrators they wanted to have events where they could wear their caps and gowns. Dr. Thompson said events like this could take place before the end of July if restrictions on large gatherings are lifted.    

    Dr. Thompson said plans are underway for televised graduation-style events for each USD 259 high school. Those events are expected in May.
