Graduation decisions made for Dodgeville's 2021 class

The 97 graduates from the class of 2021 will be able to have more family members watch them walk the stage following school board action Monday night.
Tickets for the event will be set at eight for each graduate with the plan to hold the ceremony outside. If weather dictates an inside event in the upper gym and cafeteria will be used with live streaming available.
Principal Ryan Bohnsack and staff members were saluted for the work they have put in for making a graduation event happen.
Social distancing and mask requirements will be followed pending what the Iowa County Health Department recommends.
Graduation is set for May 30.
