Graduation Tickets & FAQs

  • April 17th - Anticipated ticket distribution. I will begin distributing tickets based on the number requested. (This date is contingent upon tickets being delivered by that date)
  • April 27th - We will begin releasing tickets to the waitlist. If extra tickets are left over once all tickets have been distributed, I will distribute those on a first come, first serve basis. 

Below are some important things to note:

  • Seniors can request up to 10 tickets on the Google Form emailed to seniors on March 27th. You may request additional tickets, and will receive them on a first come, first serve, basis, based on the number of additional tickets available. 
  • Families with more than one graduate may receive up to 10 tickets per graduate, but may not sign up for additional tickets on the waitlist.
  • EVERY guest of ALL ages must have a ticket to attend. 
  • We will not distribute any tickets before April 17th. 
  • NO email or phone requests. All requests must be made through the Google Form listed below and must be submitted using the graduate's school Google account.
  • BCHS (only) teachers, graduates, performing band & choir members, yearbook photographer, interpreters, security staff, sound guy, & stage guests do not have to have a ticket.
  • Guests with special needs reserved seating also have to have a ticket. This will be noted on the special seating request form, which will be sent following spring break. 
  • Any guest who comes to graduation without a ticket will be directed to the cafeteria to enjoy the live feed. The commencement ceremony will also be streamed live by the Boyle County Sports Network, so you can easily watch from home. 
  • NO replacement for lost tickets. This will be made very clear in all announcements.
  • Tickets must remain intact when presented at the door.
