Last year, the pandemic prompted the Atlanta school system to postpone in-person graduation ceremonies for the class of 2020 on several occasions. The district eventually held two scaled-back commencement programs in November.

This year, APS joins several metro districts, including Cobb, Fulton and Henry County, that plan to hold the events in-person.
