School officials seek calm at graduation ceremony


OZARK, Ala. (AP) — School officials in Ozark are discussing how to limit outbursts and other disruptions at an upcoming high school graduation ceremony.

Carroll High School Principal Joey Brannon tells the Dothan Eagle ( that the aim is to avoid a repeat of incidents at last year's graduation. He said interruptions led to the ceremony being halted at least once to quiet people down.

He said that requiring a ticket for entry into the ceremony could help at this year's ceremony. He said that would give administrators a better idea of who a person is and how he or she - if removed - had access to the graduation.

The idea is one of a few that school officials said they are discussing to provide for more order.
