URBANA -- School leaders are turning to social media to reach out to the community. Thursday, the school district held its first-ever Twitter chat.

High school Principal Matthew Stark and Superintendent Donald Owen spent an hour or so on the site, answering questions about this year's graduation. For the first time in 40-years, it's not at the old Assembly Hall. So, they wanted to give everyone the chance to ask questions.

Right now, graduation is scheduled to be outside at McKinley Field. If the weather doesn't cooperate, it will be moved to the middle school. You can follow social media to get updates on that as well.
