State Board of Education Suspends In-Person Graduation Ceremonies

WSIU Radio

The Illinois State Board of Education has suspended in-person graduation ceremonies of any kind at this time. 

ISBE State Superintendent Dr. Carmen Ayala says this includes drive-through graduation ceremonies or events where students come in small groups to the school or another location for a photo or to walk across the stage. 

Dr. Carmen said, "We need to remember that no matter how devastating it feels to miss these sacred rites of spring, the health and safety of our students, families, and communities must remain our top priority."
