 Senior Portfolio Project


 The ZHS Senior Project-Seniors earn 1.0 credit when they complete the project which is required for graduation. Requirements and recommendations for the Senior Project will be reviewed with each student at their annual guidance conference.

     During the Senior year each student is assigned a faculty advisor. The advisor will help guide the senior to successful completion of the project and will report progress for grading purposes. Seniors will be graded with a P = Pass or an F = Fail depending on their success in meeting the objective on time.  Senior year due dates are announced in the spring of the Junior year.

Annual Recommendation: Students should document the following items and place them in their portfolio each year so that data is as complete and accurate as possible for the senior year:

  • High School and Beyond Plan
  • Activities Log
  • Test Results
  • Save samples of best works

Sophomore Year Recommendation: Students should document the following items and place them in their portfolio at home before the end of the Sophomoroe Year:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Community Service
  • Immunization Record (Shots)
  • Job Shadow
  • Photo Identification
  • Visitation (College, Technical School, Military, or Apprentice Program)
