- For the class “Roll Call,” graduates will be called to the stage on the field by assigned seating sections.
- When it is time for graduates to be individually recognized, each will come on stage, pick up a diploma cover from the table, and be verbally congratulated by building administrators positioned on stage.
- Tickets will be distributed to families of graduates and families will be seated in assigned pods during each of the ceremonies. At T-Mobile Park, graduates will sit with their guests in pods in the stadium to maximize the number of tickets each graduate receives.
- On Wednesday, May 5, a Class of 2021 Graduation Tickets survey was sent to graduating seniors BSD e-mails from our comprehensive high schools and their parents/guardians. The survey asks seniors to indicate if they plan to participate in the in-person ceremony at T-Mobile Park, allows them to request a specific number of tickets and asks them to share any accommodation(s) needed for seating and/or participation.
- Each family is guaranteed up to 4 tickets (1 for the graduate plus 3 guests). However, some additional tickets will be available. The number of additional tickets available will depend upon the number of graduating seniors who choose to participate. A request for additional tickets is included in the survey.
- In order to ensure one response per graduate, the survey is accessible from a BSD account only. Graduating seniors should access the survey when logged in to their BSD account.
