Socorro ISD plans for new graduation dates in July

The Socorro Independent School District remains committed to having commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2020.

SISD is planning to celebrate graduation with rescheduled ceremonies on July 24 and 25, 2020 at the Don Haskins Center. The proposed dates are contingent on COVID-19 restrictions as per state and local authorities.

“We know the current situation has been especially hard on our seniors,” said SISD Superintendent Jose Espinoza, Ed.D. “We want to assure the Class of 2020 that we will make every effort to ensure they enjoy that magical moment of receiving their high school diploma.”

SISD will work toward those projected dates with the guidance of the Texas Education Agency commissioner and the local public health department.

The utmost importance is the safety and well-being of students, staff and community. SISD assures seniors and their families that the district will do everything in its power to find a way to recognize and celebrate our graduates.
