Earlier this week (June 2, 2021) the ford nation announced that schools could hold in-person outdoors celebrations for graduating students. 

However, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board later announced that it has been decided that they will not proceed with outdoor in-person celebrations and will continue on with online virtual commencement ceremonies. 

Premier Doug Ford has encouraged the various Ontario school boards to make graduation ceremonies happen for students. But the responses from the school boards have devastated many students. The OCDSB claims that they have spent enough money on virtual graduations and that they do not have enough time to plan outdoor graduations.

3 weeks is enough time to plan. 

Many have communicated their disappointment in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and other Ontario school boards for not giving graduating students the graduation ceremony they need and deserve including Doug Ford himself.

For years students look forward to having a graduation ceremony, to finally being able to celebrate finishing years of school with their peers. The OCDSB has taken this part of the high school experience away from its students.

The OCDSB can make this right by giving their students the graduations they deserve and need after a long tough year.
