Hillsborough County Public Schools will air all traditional high school graduations live on cable television

Graduations will air on cable TV for the first time in Hillsborough County

May 04, 2017

For the first time, Hillsborough County Public Schools will air all traditional high school graduations live on cable on the Tampa Bay Arts and Education Network (TBAE). Hillsborough Schools will also live stream the graduations for the second year in a row.  

This is an important way to connect families and friends who cannot attend graduation because of distance, military deployment, illness, work obligations or other reasons.

“High school graduation is one of the most memorable and life-changing days in a student’s life,” said Cindy Stuart, School Board chair. “It’s important that our families don’t miss this moment. Being able to provide live coverage to our families and knowing that we can help everyone to be a part of this celebration is truly an honor.”

Graduation ceremonies will also be archived for viewing on demand at a later time. Graduation ceremonies can be seen on Spectrum Cable channel 635 or Frontier Cable channel 32, or view online at: and click on the school’s logo. Dates and times for all graduations can be found below. Also, to learn about the School District’s 90 by 20 graduation goal, click here.
