Graduation Information

Message from Mr. Wilson, 6/2/21

Greetings, this is Executive Principal, Scott Wilson, with an instant connect message for the Class of 2021 and their families.
Senior Day will be Wednesday, June 9th at the High School. Seniors need to arrive at 7:45 for an 8 AM start and the day will include a senior breakfast, graduation rehearsal, cap & gown distribution and the Senior March. Attendance at Senior Day is required for all students participating in our graduation ceremony.
 
Graduation will take place at RIT on Saturday, June 26 at 7 PM. All graduates will need to check in by 6 PM at the Gordon Field House that evening. To accommodate our numbers safely, graduates may invite up to four guests. RIT requires assigned seating for each family group. Seating details as well as rehearsal materials will be distributed during the Senior Day event.
 
Lastly, current guidelines for indoor large venues, requires everyone entering the field house must have proof of full vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours of the ceremony. Graduates will be asked to provide a list of names of their guests by filling out a Google Form found on our website. Graduates may upload proof of their own vaccination and their invited guests using this form and a screenshot of an excelsior pass or a valid vaccine card. 12 year old and younger guests will need a negative test to attend.  Alternatively, graduates and their guests may show their proof of vaccine or a negative COVID-19 test result at the Middle School North Cafeteria, door 31, Thursday, June 24 and Friday June, 25 from 11 AM-7 PM. Free COVID-19 tests for anyone in need may also visit the Middle School North, door 31, during these hours.
The Class of 2021 Commencement will be held on Saturday, June 26th.  Please know we do have multiple plans to accommodate any potential venue restrictions.  Check back for additional details.  

Graduation for Students with Disabilities

The district allows any student with a disability to participate in the graduation ceremony of his or her high school graduating class and all related graduation activities if the student:   

a)       met the eligibility criteria for an SACC or CDOS commencement credential

b)      has not otherwise qualified to receive a Regents or local diploma; and

c)      has an IEP that prescribes special education, transition planning, transition services, or related services beyond the student’s four academic years after entering high school.

The Superintendent will consider any recommendation of the student’s Committee on Education as well as the student’s own expressed preference regarding participation; a student with a disability may decline to participate in any or all graduation-related activities.
