Graduation Day Generic

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Thousands of Jefferson County Public Schools seniors will receive their diplomas at graduation ceremonies starting Friday, the last day of classes for Kentucky's largest school district.

About 6,200 seniors from 24 high schools will get their diplomas this year, according to JCPS.

This year's senior class includes 3,733 from the Academies of Louisville program, where they earned 522 college credit hours in career and technical education, some enough for an associate's degree, and 865 industry certifications, according to the school district.

"I am extremely proud of the hard work and commitment of our seniors," JCPS Superintendent Marty Pollio, who will be attending eight graduation ceremonies, said in a statement. "This is such an important part of the road, and it is one of the most meaningful experiences in our students' lives. It is an incredible honor and privilege for me to be with some of our students as they walk across that stage."

Seniors who post their graduation photos and videos to social media are being encouraged by the district to use the hashtags #JCPS2019 and #WeAreJCPS.
