Arlington graduation ceremonies will be broadcast

You don’t need a ticket to see the Class of 2013 graduate from Arlington public schools later this month.

School officials plan to broadcast the ceremonies for all three comprehensive high schools on local television and to stream them online.

It’s a new service for family members who live out of state or out of the country, said Frank Bellavia, spokesman for Arlington schools. It will also give undergraduates a chance to see their friends graduate and a glimpse of what’s to come, he said.

All three graduation ceremonies are at DAR Constitution Hall. The ceremony for Washington-Lee High is June 26, Yorktown High is June 27, and Wakefield High is June 28.

In Alexandria, Saturday’s graduation for T.C. Williams High School will also be televised on ACPS-TV and streamed online.

Most high school ceremonies in Northern Virginia are not televised.
