As multiple ceremonies are happening each day and there is significant construction occurring around Thompson-Boling, parking may be difficult and some distance from the arena. Anyone attending graduation should allow plenty of time to park and find their seats before the ceremony begins.
Knox County Schools Security Department oversees all graduation events; as such, families and guests will NOT have to abide by the University of Tennessee’s plastic bag policy, though attendees are encouraged to leave unnecessary items at home. All bags may be subject to search.
Knox County High School commencements are available for streaming live online at knoxgrads.com, where video copies of specific graduation ceremonies may also be purchased.
Please note that two or more members of the Knox County Board of Education may be present at these events.
