LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Jefferson County Public Schools released a full schedule of virtual graduation ceremonies Friday.

Graduations are one of many rites of passage that have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic that has closed schools throughout Kentucky to in-person instruction since mid-March.

JCPS Superintendent Marty Pollio has said the commencement ceremonies will include readings of the names of graduates, remarks from student and school leaders, photos and videos of the Class of 2020 for individual schools, and possible musical performances.

Kentucky's largest school district hopes to have in-person ceremonies when it's safe to do so, he said.
