Round Rock ISD was determined to celebrate the class of 2020. The result was the Senior Commencement Walk, where each graduating senior had the opportunity to walk across the stage with family present and celebrate this huge milestone they have worked so hard for over the years. These are some of the moments captured on video.
The Round Rock ISD Partners in Education Foundation (PIEF) awarded over $110,000 in scholarships to 54 Round Rock ISD seniors. This year, scholarship partners notified recipients through virtual video messages. “We are incredibly grateful for the support of our families, businesses, and individuals who every year continue to support education through our student Scholarship program,” said Marianne Reap, PIE Executive Director.
“We are so very proud of our ECHS Legacy class,” said Erika Elizondo, assistant principal of Early College High School. “The faculty surprised our seniors with congratulation yard signs to spread love and encouragement from our Owl Family.” The Early College High School Class of 2020 is the first class to earn their high school diploma and a two-year degree from Austin Community College. Way to go, Grads X2!
Summer melt is a term used by college admissions officers to explain to students who apply to college and get accepted but never actually show up in the fall. After students receive acceptance letters and decide to attend a particular college, they must complete a number of tasks to successfully start college.
To assist our families, Superintendent Dr. Steve Flores provides an overview of what graduates and families can expect during Round Rock ISD’s Senior Commencement Walk. Dr. Flores shares details from parking to what graduates will experience while on the field.
The Round Rock ISD Class of 2020 will have the opportunity to mark their milestone moment with a Commencement Walk at Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex. District leaders, together with high school principals, have prepared an experience that provides an in-person family commencement event while observing social distancing guidelines.
