Pasco Schools announces new graduation plans

Pasco County Schools released its latest in-person graduation schedule after August dates at USF's Yuengling Center were cancelled.

LAND O' LAKES – Making plans in advance in 2020 is no easy task.

Like many other schools districts throughout the state still attempting to hold graduation ceremonies, Pasco County Schools is having to get creative. The latest plan to utilize the University of South Florida's Yuengling Center for August ceremonies fell through, so it's on to the next one.

Rather than holding graduations at a Tampa-area arena, stadium or other venue, most events will now be on Pasco County school campuses from July 17-31.

According to a Pasco Schools press release, each graduate will be allowed to bring two guests, and each group of three (graduate and two guests) will be seated together on the field at a safe distance from other graduates and their guests.

Pasco County Class of 2020 graduation ceremonies were originally scheduled at the Yuengling Center in June. Health concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus caused those dates to be pushed back to August. Graduates were honored with a virtual graduation on the same June date and time that their graduation would have occurred.

The new graduation dates, times provided and locations provided by Pasco County Schools are listed below.
