While the 2019-20 academic year has taken an unprecedented turn, here are six things every Pflugerville ISD senior needs to know before graduation.

  1. A possible in-person graduation has been shifted to June

    PfISD Superintendent Doug Killian announced May 5 that potential in-person graduation ceremonies were shifted to June due to the Texas Education Agency’s guidance that restricted in-person, outdoor graduation ceremonies through the end of May. Graduation, originally scheduled for May 30 at the Frank Erwin Center, will now potentially be held June 1-2 or June 12-13 at The Pfield. For more information, click here.

  2. When to pick up your senior cap and gown

    For seniors in need of picking up their caps and gowns, each of Pflugerville ISD’s high schools have set up days to do so.

  3. When to drop off your textbooks, retrieve personal items

    Students who have outstanding library materials or textbooks needing to be returned can do so to their school campus in May. While picking up senior caps and gowns, students are also able to return borrowed library materials and textbooks as well as retrieve personal items left on campus.

  5. How to receive counseling support, as needed

    If in need of counseling resources, PfISD has compiled a list of resources for students to access. A complete listing can be found here.

  6. How GPAs, class rankings are determined

    Due to the coronavirus pandemic, class rankings, grade point averages and the top 10% of the class of 2020 have been determined based on fall 2019 semester grades. More information on the grading process can be found here.
