  • One at One: Graduation Ceremonies for New Jersey Schools

Today’s Issue:

Can New Jersey schools hold in-person graduation ceremonies?

Answer:

YES. According to a Tweet by Gov. Murphy, beginning July 6, 2020 schools may host outdoor graduation ceremonies that comply with social distancing. NJ will release guidance on 5/27/20 for social distancing requirements, including the maximum number of people allowed to attend these ceremonies. Some schools may have to hold multiple ceremonies, depending on the size of the graduating class.
