Tyler ISD sets dates, ticket guidelines for graduation ceremonies

Local News

TYLER, Texas (KETK) Tyler ISD graduating students will get to walk the stage as of this time.

On Wednesday, school officials released their plan, moving forward with the original dates they had scheduled.

Ceremonies will have a different look to them, including graduates and guests to follow social distancing guidelines, and safety and security protocols.

“The time is nearing for Tyler ISD to graduate its more than 1,100 seniors, commemorating the journey in K-12 education. We are watchfully optimistic that Gov. Abbott’s Open Texas announcement provides the opportunity for school systems to execute graduation exercises with precautionary safety measures observed. These young adults have endured quite an abnormal closure to their educational experience and deserve a celebration as close to normal as we can provide; and that normal is on Earl Campbell Field at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium.”

Dr. Marty Crawford, Tyler ISD Superintendent

RISE Academy and ECHS graduation will be moving outdoors to Christus Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium.

Each graduate will be allowed five tickets to the event for their family members. Each ticket will admit one adult or child.

Graduation ceremonies will air live on TISD-TV Channel 19 and the district website. All ceremonies will be recorded for DVD purchase.

Below is the schedule :

  • Wednesday, June 3, 8 p.m. – RISE Academy
  • Thursday, June 4, 8 p.m. – Early College High School (ECHS)
  • Friday, June 5, 8 p.m. – John Tyler High School
  • Saturday, June 6, 8 p.m. – Robert E. Lee High School

Should rain or inclement weather delay any of the scheduled ceremonies, the District Contingency Plan is to move the RISE Academy ceremony to Thursday, June 4, at 9 a.m. and the ECHS ceremony to Friday, June 5, at 9 a.m.

If either of the John Tyler or Robert E. Lee ceremonies are rained out, that ceremony will move to Sunday, June 7.
