Senioritis. It’s a problem that seems to afflict high school seniors, especially during their final semester, causing them to repeatedly miss days of school and lead to frustration for parents, faculty and administrators.
Iola High School Principal Scott Crenshaw thinks he knows a cure, or at least a plan to reduce the trouble caused by seniors who frequently skip school: Let them leave. But only if they can earn it.
Many schools throughout the state — including five of the seven in the Pioneer League — allow second-semester seniors to take only the courses they require for graduation, and then take the rest of the day off.
