The Bowling Green Board of Education voted unanimously Tuesday to keep this year's high school graduation on Friday, May 30.
Superintendent Ann McVey said that a survey of district parents showed an even split over whether to change the date.
At the board's October meeting, parents, including the Athletic Boosters, asked that the graduation date be changed in deference to athletes who may be involved in state or regional athletic tournaments on Friday.
The other option, said board member Paul Walker, would have been Sunday, June 1. A Saturday date, he said, would have still involved conflicts.
McVey said in deference to those who have already started planning or graduation parties in May, the recommendation was to keep the 2014 date as scheduled.
However, she said sentiment was overwhelmingly in favor of finding a day other than Friday for future graduations.
She said she will instruct the committee looking at the district's calendar not to schedule graduation on a Friday for 2015 and beyond.
