Beginning with the graduation class of 2010, students selecting to pursue a Board of Education Diploma must complete a senior project (one credit), meet course and credit requirements for graduation, and attain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above (BOE Policy 4540).
The essential components of the senior project are:
What is a community mentor?
Who can be a mentor?
What is a mentor's Role?
Who can help me find a mentor?
How do I make contact with a mentor?
Contact the prospective mentor by phone, email or arrange a meeting in a public place. When you do find a mentor, go over deadlines for the Senior Project to make sure they have the time to help you. Inform your parents of who the mentor will be and if possible, introduce your parents to your mentor. Your mentor sign and date your project proposal.
