Perth Amboy Parents Lose Appeal to Change Graduation Time

An administrative law judge has rejected a request by some parents to change Perth Amboy High School’s graduation back to the evening.

The parents were upset they would not be able to take off from work to attend Thursday’s 9 a.m. ceremony. They also claimed it would conflict with the middle school’s graduation.

The Home News Tribune reports the judge’s decision came late Tuesday afternoon, following a lengthy court hearing. It will be sent to state Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf, who can affirm or reject it.

Perth Amboy’s high school graduation has been held at 6 p.m. for 40 years.

But the district’s superintendent shifted it to the morning after several people suffered from the heat last year. Officials also cited the threat of late-day thunderstorms.
