Two days after announcing that every Miami-Dade County public high school would have an in-person graduation this spring, MDCPS superintendent Alberto Carvalho released tentative schedules for the ceremonies Sunday morning.
Each school’s seniors will have a chance to march across stages from June 1 through June 9. Most of the graduations will take place at the auditorium at Miami Senior High, 2450 SW First St.; Miami-Dade County Fair Exposition Center, 10901 SW 24t St; and Ocean Bank Convocation Center (the basketball arena on FIU’s main campus), 1180 SW 113th Ave.
“Health & safety protocols will be presented to the Medical & Health Task Force for input,” Carvalho said in a Tweet. “Final schedule and protocols will be provided to all high schools for dissemination to students and families shortly thereafter.”
The COVID-19 pandemic threw the educational world online in 2020 and threw out the traditional graduation ceremonies.
