Important Dates for 2012-2013:
What is a graduation project?
A graduation project should be a challenging and exploratory learning activity that requires you to stretch yourself and explore an interesting topic.
What will I produce?
Your graduation project can take the form of a thesis, portfolio, creative project, performance, teaching experience, presentation, service project, etc. The possibilities are endless!
Can I earn credit or service hours for my graduation project?
Yes! If you would like to earn academic credit, you must complete the Independent Contract process and work with a resource person and certifying teacher. If you would like to earn service hours, see Nick or Matt for approval and complete the necessary paperwork.
Do I have to do a totally independent project?
No! You can take a high school class with a built-in graduation project or work with a Delta teacher to complete your project as a supplement to one of your Delta classes. You can also with with another student, as long as you obtain approval from the committee.
What if I don't know where to start?
You can begin the brainstorming process by using this brainstorming worksheet.
What is the graduation project committee?
The graduation project committee (Jon, Cheryl, Tom & Lynda) meets after school at 3:15 once a month to approve graduation project proposals.
What do I need to do before attending a graduation project committee meeting?
1) Write your formal proposal - Proposal Outline
2) Email your proposal to Jon 24 hours before the meeting
3) Contact a Delta teacher to serve as your project supervisor
Do I have to be a senior to do my graduation project?
No! As long as your project is some type of culminating activity, you may complete it before your senior year.
My project has some associated costs, can I receive financial assistance from Delta?
You can request a loan or a grant from Advisory Council's cash cow committee. (More information to come about this process - if you have questions in the meantime, see a member of Advisory Council!)
See you adviser, project supervisor, or a graduation project committee member if you have more questions!
