Commencement Information Class of 2017

Pope High School  > Graduation Home > Tickets > Handicapped Seating > Graduation Practices  



Handicapped individuals should arrive at the Convocation Center and assemble at the middle door of the Atrium Entrance at 1:30 p.m. to be admitted. Please be cautious of the weather conditions as we will not be able to let anyone enter before 1:30 p.m.  The handicapped individual and one additional family member will be admitted.  Each of these people must have a ticket to be admitted. Guests with handicaps and elderly guests requiring special assistance may be seated on the mezzanine in the handicap recesses or on the arena floor behind the rope-line. It will be impossible for these early entrees to save seats for additional family members.  Please email the guest’s name and person accompanying them to eric.gray@cobbk12.org  by May 19, 2017 so we may have a list and be sure we have adequate seating.


In accordance with KSU requirements, all persons entering the Convocation Center MUST submit all bags and packages for inspection by public safety personnel.  Please do not bring any packages that cannot be opened or inspected.  Also, please allow extra time for entry as there may be delays.


KSU charges a $10.00 parking fee per car. Drivers should be prepared to pay with cash and bring exact change to enter the lot quickly and keep traffic moving.

Graduates are to park in the Central parking Deck (#42 on the campus map) for the ceremony. Graduates are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes for walking from the Central Parking Deck to the Carmichael Student Center (#5 on the map).

Guests will park in the East Parking Deck (#9 on the campus map) and the East Parking Lot (across Frey Road from the East Parking Deck).  Overflow parking will be available in the Central Parking Deck (#42 on the campus map).

Guests with handicaps and elderly guests needing assistance should park in either Lot A or Lot B (as designated on the campus map).  Golf carts will run continuously to convey guests to and from the Convocation Center.
