Mayor supports DOE approval of public school graduation ceremonies

The State Department of Education announced yesterday approval of outdoor in-person commencement exercises this spring for public schools.  Specific health guidelines such as limiting attendance and mandatory mask wearing are required.

In response to the decision, County of Maui Mayor Michael Victorino issued the following statement today:

“On behalf of the people of Maui County and especially the class of 2021, I am happy the State Department of Education has decided to allow commencement exercises for public schools this spring. Although this decision was outside the scope of our authority, we’ve been honored to work with State Superintendent Christina Kishimoto and Kathleen Dimino, Complex Area Superintendent of the Baldwin-Kekaulike-Maui Complex, to resolve this situation. My administration stands ready to work with schools that may want to use a County outdoor venue.

Our students worked hard to adapt to a new way of learning and should be commended for their achievements. This is welcome news for all graduates, their ʻohana, and our community.”
