Graduation is a social milestone students work 13 years to achieve. The ceremony is punctuated with celebratory moments of walking across the stage in front of beaming parents, turning the tassel, snagging the sought-after diploma, and, as a class collectively tossing caps into the air with abandon.

These are significant moments, they mark the end of one phase and the beginning of a next.

Graduation ceremonies will look, feel different

In the age of COVID-19, graduation ceremonies will look markedly different. Some school districts across the nation are considering drive-in ceremonies. Other districts plan to hold graduation ceremonies in July when they believe the threat of the coronavirus has waned. Still, others, like Desert Sands Unified School District plans to hold virtual ceremonies.
