Information for Seniors
Unfortunately, the traditional graduation ceremony is very unlikely this year due to the predicted lingering dangers of exposure to COVID-19 and current prohibitions against the gathering of large crowds in public venues.
So, OKCPS is currently in the process of creating virtual graduation events. Although we would love to see each of our seniors walk across the stage with their classmates, we hope these virtual ceremonies will still allow us a unique opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 for each of our high schools. More information on graduation 2020 will be available soon.
For the graduating class of 2019-2020, each district has adopted a plan that establishes the assessment or assessments those students are required to take in order to graduate. For OKCPS, a minimum of 23 units (46 credits) is required to graduate from high school. As always, OKCPS is committed to helping all of our seniors who are on track to graduate. If you have a specific question or concern, please contact your school counselor.
OKCPS is working with an audio/visual company to create a graduation video for each school. Videos will include a message from the Superintendent, school principal and class officers or validictorian.
These videos will be released on the date of each schools original graduation date. Please use the left navigation to access all graduation information for each school.
Virtual graduation ceremony videos will be released on the original date and time each school was scheduled to have their ceremony.
