The Senior Project is an activity and assessment that will be required for all graduating seniors. It demonstrates a senior’s ability to write, speak, problem-solve, apply knowledge and skills and to practice the life skills of time management, organization and risk-taking. It is a state mandated one-credit requirement of all seniors. There are four phases of the Senior Project: Portfolio, Project, Paper, and Presentation. The Portfolio will be a compilation of materials created and utilized by the student, documenting the individual’s educational journey. The Project requires the student to apply the knowledge gained during research in the thinking, design, and/or actual production of the project. The Paper will be on a topic of the student’s choice and will involve all the researching skills necessary for coming to a deeper understanding and knowledge about the student’s chosen subject. The Presentation will be the final phase which requires the student to speak to a board of judges about the Senior Project.
