In a letter to parents on Wednesday, Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie announced virtual graduation plans for the Class of 2020.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, he said traditional graduation ceremonies had to be altered.
“After completing more than a decade of schooling, you have reached a proud milestone and are ready to jump into the next chapter of life,” Superintendent Runcie said in his message to seniors. “With the education and training you have received, you are well prepared to be successful on whatever path you take. Our goal is to use technology to make your graduation personal and memorable.”
Over the past few weeks, administrators and teachers have met with seniors and representatives from across the District to consider graduation options and receive their input on plans.
The decision was made that virtual graduation ceremonies for each high school will take place June 15 – 28, 2020, and will include all of the traditional pomp and circumstance, including speeches and roll call of graduates.
The ceremony will broadcast live on BECON-TV and will be live-streamed. The date for the graduations, along with more details, will be announced on Friday, May 1.
