CUSD High School Graduation 2020


Greetings CUSD Students & Parents/Guardians:

We are excited to formally announce that Compton Unified School District will be hosting a drive-up graduation parade and ceremonial stage walk for all graduating CUSD High School Seniors. The ceremonial parade and stage walk will take place at Compton Community College on June 11th, 2020 (Early College June 10 for the high school ceremony and June 12th for the college ceremony). Please read this entire letter because it contains important information about graduation.

Graduation Ceremony Details

Date: June 10th (Early College School Ceremony);
          June 11th (Centennial, Compton, Dominguez);
          June 12 (Early College- College Ceremony)
Time: See schedule
Location: Compton Community College, Greenleaf Entrance (see map below)
COVID-19 Safety: We are hosting the graduation in this way due to COVID-19 requirements from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, which still prevents gatherings of large groups. Though we would love to again be all together in a large stadium sharing hugs and handshakes in person, we must follow certain guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus, and ensure each student can experience their special moment.

Require Attire

Students are to wear their cap and gown, along with a protective mask or face covering. Caps and gowns are being distributed at school sites the week of June 1st. Please contact your school’s main office for information.

Drive Through and Stage Walk

Only one car will be allowed per graduate. Students must arrive at the Compton College gate located on Greenleaf (See Map Marked Entrance) at the scheduled time--if not, they risk not being let in the facility. A school individualized Entrance Pass will need to be visible by CUSD Police in order to enter Compton College. Once in the facility the car will follow a guided pathway leading to the main stage. Students will exit their car once it is near the main stage. Students will collect a diploma cover, have their name called over the PA system and walk across the stage. A photo station will be created so the parent can take a photo from their car. The student will get back in the car and they will be directed to the exit gate.

Planning Ahead

Please, expect to be in your car between one to two hours for the duration of the graduation ceremony. We highly encourage that those attending the graduation use the restroom before the event (there will be very limited access to Porta Potty Restrooms). It is also recommended to have a full tank of gas as well as a vehicle that is able to idle without overheating. Due to tight traffic patterns Limousines, Party-Buses, Oversized vehicles or Convertibles with top retracted will be prohibited. Based on Covid-19 guidelines, participants will not be allowed to exit the vehicle during the ceremony, therefore, small children who cannot sit for long periods of time are recommended to stay home.
