Leadership classes are offered 4th & 6th periods and the class is one semester either 1st or 2nd.
The Senior Leadership (Project):
The goal of the Senior Leadership class is to
provide the time and support students need to help them develop and complete an independent study project of their own design.
They must secure a mentor to provide accountability. The project 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. There
are four phases of the Senior Project: Portfolio, Project, Paper, and Presentation. The Portfolio
is a compilation of materials created and utilized by the student, documenting the individual's educational journey. The
Project requires a student to apply the knowledge gained during research in the thinking, design, and/or
actual production of project. The Paper is on a topic of the student's choice and involves all
the researching skills necessary to develop a deeper understanding and knowledge about the student's chosen topic. The
Presentation is the final phase which requires the student to present their project in a public setting and
is scored using specific criteria.
mission of the Senior Leadership (Project) class at Homedale High School is to provide an opportunity for each student to
demonstrate his/her readiness to become a productive citizen of the world community and to prepare for post-secondary college
and career readiness.
High School values the Senior Leadership class and has a clear vision of what the project will accomplish. Students
