ST. CLOUD -- The commencement ceremonies for Tech and Apollo high schools will be moving to the St. Cloud Civic Center this spring.

The graduation ceremonies for both schools were originally scheduled to be held at St. Cloud State University's Hallenbeck Hall, but school officials recently found out that facility was no longer available.

Apollo Assistant Principal Dave Earp says the Civic Center will charge the district $500 for each ceremony.  He says graduation announcements have already been printed, so students will receive an insert that will have the new location.

The dates for the graduations will remain the same -- Apollo's graduation ceremony is on May 26th, and Tech's graduation is on May 27th.
