Graduation celebrations

Much like awards celebrations held at each high school ahead of graduation, there are several districtwide graduation celebrations that honor students from all high schools and across student groups that have historically struggled to graduate or may have faced significant barriers during their K-12 journey.

These celebrations are an opportunity for students to receive specific cultural or honorary regalia for their commencement ceremonies and gather with students of similar lived experiences throughout their time in school.

Cultural and honorary regalia

Regalia is a special commemoration for students whose cultures are a proud component of their lives and educational journeys. Students display their regalia with their cap and gown during graduation to connect their achievements with the customs, traditions and values unique to them.
