School Board of Clay County
May 7, 2020 - Regular School Board Meeting
C2 - Adjustment to the Student Calendar 2019-2020 for Class of 2020 Graduation Date

Due to the unprecedented worldwide pandemic of COVID-19, the current CDC guidelines regarding social gatherings, and Governor DeSantis' decision to continue to keep schools closed for the remainder of the school year, Clay County District Schools will be unable to hold its traditional graduation commencement ceremony on its previously Board Approved date of Friday, May 29th. 

Superintendent Broskie's recommendation is to postpone graduation until Friday, July 17th, or in the event that emergency conditions or scheduling dictate a need to change further, the Superintendent can select any other date that he deems to be appropriate, with notification to the members of the School Board of the date change. 

Graduation will be held at all high school's football fields as per tradition. This will provide the county more time for potential changes to the CDC guidelines in regards to large group gatherings.
