DARIEN — Darien school officials have tentatively set Darien High School’s 2016 graduation for June 16.

State regulations prevent the school board from setting the date officially until April 1, but since the board doesn’t meet again until April 25, superintendent Dan Brenner said he wanted to set a tentative date so community members can plan.

“We want to give families the opportunity to make tentative plans,”Brenner said. “The goal is to say to parents...it’ll be around then.”

The board will formally vote on the date on April 25.
