For each graduation, HCPSS will feature an online video stream and a live textual transcript. There will be ASL interpreters at each ceremony, on stage left and visible on the large screens at Merriweather, live feed and rebroadcasts.
Parking information will be forthcoming.
Commencement ceremonies are public events and, as such, may be photographed or videotaped. Additional photography information is forthcoming.
It is imperative that media and other photographers/videographers do not interfere with the official documenting of commencement events and observe the following guidelines:
- Representatives of news outlets should wear their media ID badges in a plain sight. Upon arrival at Merriweather Post Pavilion on the day of the event, check in backstage with the HCPSS graduation coordinator(s).
- Follow directions regarding where you will be permitted to stand in order to avoid interfering with the commencement activities.
- No photos or video are to be shot from the stage unless special permission is obtained in advance through the Office of Communications (410-313-6682). Special permission will not be granted on the day of the commencement.
- Failure to follow these guidelines may result in removal from the premises.
How to Watch Graduations
HCPSS will stream each graduation online. Viewers will access the online graduations at the school's scheduled date/time by going to www.hcpss.org up to 10 minutes prior to each event. Archived videos will be available soon after each graduation's end by selecting the applicable school from the boxes above on this page. Videos will remain on the HCPSS website until next year’s graduations, or can be accessed permanently on the HCPSS YouTube channel.
HCPSS also will rebroadcast the graduations on Howard County cable channels 42 (Verizon) and 95 (Comcast). A rebroadcast schedule will be available in the spring, prior to graduations. Please note, rebroadcast schedules are subject to change. Any updates will be posted on this page.
