• Congratulations Grads

    #KCSGrads2020

    Congratulations to the Class of 2020! Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, Knox County Schools is committed to honoring this year’s graduates and to celebrating their achievements.

    Graduation ceremonies will be held at school football fields between June 8 and June 20. Career Magnet Academy, Paul Kelley Academy and L&N STEM Academy will hold graduation ceremonies at Central High School. Ridgedale and K.A.E.C. will host graduation ceremonies at their respective schools. Ceremonies will be livestreamed at knoxgrads.com, where they will also be available for later viewing.

    A full schedule is included below. Each graduate will be provided tickets to bring up to four guests. Attendees will be expected to follow precautionary guidelines such as physical distancing among guests, wearing a mask or cloth face covering and staying home if experiencing fever, cough or other symptoms.

    We’re grateful to our seniors and their family members for their patience, and for helping us navigate this challenging situation. We look forward to celebrating with them in June!
