High school graduation in Minneapolis moves to Facebook

KSTP-TV reports

MPS said final details of the event are still being worked out but High School Associate Superintendent Shawn Harris-Berry said plans include MPS airing graduation ceremonies for each high school on Facebook Live through a link on the district’s website and on Minneapolis Comcast Cable channel 15. The plan is for the virtual ceremonies to be held on the same dates as the originally-scheduled ceremonies. Portions of the ceremonies will be live and portions will be pre-recorded. All recorded ceremonies will be archived on the MPS website for later viewing, according to the news release.

It’s a sign of the times. My heart goes out to the seniors and their families. A Facebook graduation is not like a graduation in real time but it is much better than nothing.
