What is the Graduation Project?
Johnston County has had the graduation in place since 2000, therefore, students will continue work on the project as a local graduation requirement.
The Graduation Project has four parts: a research paper, product, portfolio, and oral presentation before a review board. These four components are designed to be a culmination of the entire high school experience. To complete the Graduation Project, students will apply skills needed to be successful in post-secondary education and careers. The project requires students to demonstrate what they know and what they can do with the skills acquired in high school. (Students will still be required to achieve proficiency on five End-of-Course tests as well in order to graduate.)
The four components:
In addition to the student requirements, Johnston County Schools is committed to making this experience meaningful and relevant to students by involving the community in mentoring and serving on review boards for the project. If you are interested in serving as a mentor or review board volunteer, please contact Logan Francisco at email@example.com or call 919-934-7333.
Prospective volunteers will also need to complete a JCS Volunteer Application.
