Mountain View’s 2017 seniors will graduate on campus next spring, with ceremonies at all three county schools set for Saturday, May 13.
Times are as follows: Mountain View at 9:30 a.m., Timbo at 5 p.m., and Rural Special at 7 p.m., with ceremonies taking place in each school’s gymnasium.
Mountain View’s graduation has been in the Ozark Folk Center auditorium for several years and last year was moved from Saturday to a Tuesday night to accommodate the needs of the state park. A group of parents had lobbied to have the ceremony moved to the campus and back to Saturday, and the board approved this at its Aug. 8 meeting.
Also during the meeting, Supt. Rowdy Ross gave a report on the district’s first batch of scores from the newest assessment test, ACT Aspire.
