PERKASIE, Pa. - A school district in Bucks County is bending its rules for some students in the military.
Pennridge officials say they will allow those who have already completed basic training to wear their full dress uniforms instead of traditional caps and gowns for all commencement activities.
The decision is in response to a controversy over whether the students who already completed basic training should be allowed to wear their Army sashes at graduation.
The district has a policy against wearing sashes of any kind.
Parking scofflaws might be getting a gift, but likely not in time for the holidays.Read More »
