Windham considering policy on graduation attire after student's request to wear military sash
This month, administrators said that a member of Windham High School’s Class of 2014 had approached them immediately before the June 13 ceremony.
Senibaldi said that only a “very small group of students” manage to complete basic training before receiving their high school diploma.
Superintendent Winfried Feneberg agreed the issue was worth pondering.
The superintendent suggested the board consider working with administrators to research the matter and draft a policy or procedure for the board to consider.
While Feneberg wondered if such a policy should be added to the student handbook, Joanis said he wasn’t sure an official policy was necessary. He agreed a procedure warranted discussion.
Board member Ken Eyring disagreed with administrators’ decision on the sash.
“If we have a student in a similar position next year, there should be no question,” Rekart said, noting his thoughts that a military sash isn’t much different than the tassels worn by National Honor Society members.
