Seniors will be learning more about a graduation requirement – Senior Defense – during Crimson Hour on Tuesday, October 30. The purpose of the Defense will be explained, and a rubric will be provided. For those Seniors who would like to get this requirement fulfilled quickly, the first opportunity to conduct the Senior Defense will be Monday, 11/5 (no school day). Support and questions for the Senior Defense will be provided 12/7 and 12/21 (see page 2 of the rubric), and the next scheduled dates to conduct Senior Defense are March 12, 2019 on ACT day and May 3, 2019 (Oaks Day, no school). If you have questions after your Senior learns about the Senior Defense on 10/30, please reach out to Ms. Lete. While all Manual students will be adding content to their digital backpacks, only Seniors need to conduct a Defense to demonstrate readiness to transition out of high school.
