VISD Sets a Graduation Inclement Weather Contingency Plan
Victoria Independent School District sets a graduation contingency plan due to the chance of rain in the weather forecast.
Statement from VISD:
Victoria East High School is scheduled to hold its graduation ceremony on Friday, June 2, 2017, at 8:00 p.m. inside Memorial Stadium. Victoria West High School is scheduled to hold its graduation ceremony on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at 8:00 p.m. inside Memorial Stadium.
Graduation practice for both campuses will be held at 9:00 a.m. the day of graduation, regardless of weather conditions. If we experience inclement weather at the time of practice, graduation practice will be moved inside the Liberty Conference Center Gym.
If weather conditions will not allow for the graduation ceremony to be held outdoors in Memorial Stadium, the following contingency plan will go into effect:
The graduation ceremony location will be moved to the Victoria Fine Arts Center. Due to limited seating at the Fine Arts Center, students will be provided with two guest tickets at graduation practice to be used in the event the ceremony must be changed due to weather conditions.
We will begin providing updates on the planned location of the graduation ceremony at 5:30 p.m. through the VISD website and Facebook page.
If we must relocate the graduation ceremony to the Fine Arts Center, we will also provide live video streaming of the graduation ceremony on the VISD website.
**Project Graduation will take place as originally scheduled, regardless of weather.
