The district has announced that the June 8, 2018 graduation ceremony will be held on campus, rather than at Rabobank Stadium in Salinas, after a potential delay in the campus construction schedule has made the area near the practice soccer fields available. Additionally, the district has announced that the 2019 ceremony will be held at the new multi-use fields currently under construction on campus and the 2020 ceremony will be held in the new stadium.
