During their high school career, students shall complete a graduation project. A graduation project is defined as a self-selected activity chosen by a single student or small group of students. It reflects in-depth learning and should be related to the students’ academic or personal interests or goals. The project can be an outgrowth of an existing co-curricular assignment, community service, or career shadowing. It cannot be a required course, paid employment of community service required by a court of law. The project cannot be completed, in whole or in part, during the school day. Advisors may not be relatives of the student completing the project, and specifics of the project management or supervision may be dictated by the principal and the graduation project committee.
The graduation project requires a 35-hour service component, written reflection, and a summative oral presentation.
Failure to meet prescribed deadlines outlined by school officials will result in athletic and co-curricular ineligibility. This includes, but is not limited to, participation in any school-sanctioned functions like athletic games, homecoming, school-related visits to non-school grounds locations, and the prom. After June 1, students who have not completed a graduation project do not qualify for graduation and may not participate in commencement.
