Dougco to live-stream graduations

Do grandma and grandpa live in Damascus or Detroit, but still want to see their grandchild graduate in Douglas County?

The Douglas County School District this week announced plans to live-stream all 13 of its high school graduations this spring. The announcement comes after the district’s successful pilot program last year livestreaming four graduations, all of which were held at Sports Authority Stadium in Parker.

This year’s ambitious plan encompasses seven different locations.

“This is such a tremendous community and global outreach,” said Dougco schools spokesman Randy Barber. “Last year we had an exchange student’s family from Germany tune in and a grandmother who was recovering from surgery in Phoenix and several others who couldn’t be at the stadium.”

The majority of the graduations will be broadcast live on the district’s Livestream account. The video will be available on DougTV (Comcast Channel 54), the District’s app and DCSD’s Youtube and Facebook accounts.
