High Schools set dates for Alternative Honors, Graduations Ceremonies


From Coweta County Schools Press Release

Coweta County School System high schools have set alternative dates and plans for honoring their 2020 graduates.

East Coweta, Northgate and Newnan High Schools will use a combination of virtual on-line honors and graduation ceremonies to recognize students in May, given that schools and school functions will remain closed due to the COVID-19 epidemic.  The three high schools are working with community partners, the Central Educational Center and WOW studios to film the virtual broadcasts, which will be aired on a variety of media.

Virtual recognitions in May will be followed by live formal graduation ceremonies in late July for all students who wish to participate, as circumstances allow.

The high school schedules are:
