Lincoln School students graduate, calendar changes for next school year

Thirty-six eighth-grade students graduated from Lincoln School yesterday, the last class of students to graduate from the school's full-year calendar. In August, Lincoln will transition to a traditional school calendar like the rest of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation schools. Principal Ronnetha Darrett says officials surveyed parents to gather their opinions on the schedule, and the majority wanted a change. For those students who still want extra education time, Lincoln is offering a "Jump Start" session July 24th through August 13, one day before school officially begins.
