Senior Name Verification Letters
Letters were recently mailed home to all seniors potentially graduating from Darby, including Online Academy and Tolles students.  These letters REQUIRE a response!  The student’s legal name needs to be verified.  We are required, by law, to print a student’s legal name on their diploma.  There is an option to provide legal documentation of a name change.  You can also indicate if a different name should be printed in the graduation program and read out loud during the ceremony.
