VISD announces update for 2020 graduation

VICTORIA, Texas — On Monday, Victoria ISD unveiled a revised plan for their 2020 commencement in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that has forced schools around the country to transition to “distance learning”.

In addition to virtual graduations already planned for each school, the district announced a staggered schedule for commencement walks, which will take place between May 26th and May 30th at Memorial Stadium. Each graduate will be allowed two guests, but spectators will not be permitted in the stands.

Names will still be announced as graduates walk on stage to “Pomp and Circumstance”, and a professional photographer will be on hand at the event.

VISD said they would update students and families with additional information as it comes out.
