Killeen ISD cancels in-person graduation ceremony

Local News

KILLEEN, Texas – The Killeen Independent School District has canceled all plans for an in-person graduation ceremony.

This comes due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases across Texas, and to maintain the health and safety of graduates, their families, and Killeen ISD staff.

According to the district in a statement released Thursday afternoon, capacity restrictions simply do not provide the ability to use the Bell County Expo Center at this time. They hoped the delay would have led to a more traditional ceremony – however, current circumstances have not provided this window of opportunity.

The district says this decision was not made lightly, but they feel they must keep the health and safety of the Killeen community at the forefront.
