Graduation Dates and Livestreaming

Congratulations to the Class of 2019 header image


All of the attention and an astonishing number of cameras will be focused on graduates, during Douglas County School District’s commencement ceremonies. Many of the guests gathered to celebrate these special days will never know the great amount of collaboration and attention-to-detail given to make each ceremony a success.

Every year, DCSD employees, from a variety of departments, work collaboratively and seamlessly together to prepare venues, support the high schools during the ceremonies, and then clean up afterwards. From setting up hundreds of chairs to developing plans for the influx of traffic and coordinating specific details with local municipalities, it takes a small army of staff members from Facilities, Athletics and Activities, Security, Transportation, Communications and, of course, our schools to accomplish the task at hand.


Live Streaming


Douglas County School District is proud to offer live streaming of all of its graduations.

GraduatesThe Internet broadcasts ensure that thousands of people, some as far away as China, don't miss the big day.

It is important to note: Live streaming is reliant on a number of factors, many of which are not in the control of the Douglas County School District, including the Internet service provided by third-party institutions/companies. DCSD endeavors to provide a high-quality broadcast of our graduations, but occasionally, due to unforeseen circumstances, this may not be possible. In those cases, DCSD will do its best to provide video clips of the ceremonies afterwards.
