    Senior Project - Class of 2021

    Completing the senior project during the pandemic offers students and their school community opportunities to reexamine how meaningful work can still happen during difficult and demanding circumstances. The Coeur d’Alene School District encourages students, families, teachers, and mentors to work together to find creative, adaptive solutions to some of the challenges that will present themselves during the completion of the senior project, and to consider how these solutions exemplify the District’s Portrait of a Graduate while maintaining student safety. More than ever, as a learning community, we are called upon to consider what it means to be a critical thinker, collaborative, creative, and communicative. This year, it is essential we all apply content knowledge in ways that demonstrate our character.
