Brock Schmeltz started this petition to Gilbert Public Schools and

       In light of recent events, the Gilbert Public Schools district has announced that all high school graduation ceremonies will be canceled and a video will be made in its place. This decision was made without the input of thousands of high school seniors, parents and family members. The utter disregard for the senior class of 2020 speaks miles on the true intentions of Shane McCord and Gilbert Public Schools as a whole. 
       We agree that these are trialing times and are understanding towards the fact that we must be creative and flexible. However, ask yourself this, is abandoning graduation as a whole the answer here? High School graduation is supposed to be one of the more memorable mile stones in someone's life and to have it ripped away without making an effort to communicate with the students is unjust. 
       So we, the Desert Ridge High School class of 2020 are petitioning for the postponement of the commencement ceremony. We understand the logistical and financial barriers that will be faced, but this is how Gilbert Public Schools can make up for the mistake they have just made. Many other school districts have postponed graduation. Please follow in their footsteps.
