The Tennessee Department of Education has released some graduation guidelines to districts all across the state. While there are many ways to still celebrate, the state says safety needs to come first.
The decision to hold a ceremony is up to school boards and superintendents. If they decide to hold one, they’ll need to work with their local health departments.
The state is asking districts to get creative, like holding graduation at a stadium with limited guests and practicing social distancing. They also suggested holding a drive-in style ceremony or even a drive-by ceremony at the school. They also said it’s possible to hold several smaller commencements.
