RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Families and seniors at Richmond Public Schools are expected to receive an update on in-person graduation plans during a board meeting on Monday.
According to the meeting’s agenda, the district is hoping to host in-person ceremonies and is working to secure an outdoor location suitable for all schools.
The plan says Gov. Ralph Northam’s updated guidance on outdoor events — as well as an increase in vaccination rates and decrease in COVID-19 positivity rates — make the ceremonies feasible.
The update, which will be presented by Superintendent Jason Kamras, says the district would consider morning and evening ceremony times to avoid the mid-June heat. Livestreams would be available for those unable to attend.
The virtual school board meeting is slated for Monday, May 3 at 6 p.m. A full agenda can be found at this link.
Public comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 p.m. on Monday.
