I don't know if Haylee or her mother will ever see this petition, but it's inspiring to me that this many people came out and signed already. Thank you everyone for your time and your heartfelt "reason" notes. The school district did announce today that a "final" decision has been reached and she will be allowed to walk. I do believe that public outcry might have played a part. Thanks again!
Haylee is fighting a cancerous brain tumor (diagnosed at 14) and has spent the last year in a round of intense chemotherapy. She is lacking four elective course credits that she will be completing this summer. Haylee has completed all of her core credits. She really wants to walk at graduation with her peers.
The school district is claiming that taking a lenient stand in this situation will set a precedent that they are unwilling to support. Here is the original local news story: http://www.ktvb.com/news/Senior-not-allowed-to-walk-at-graduation-153412775.html
