I’ve just been aware of this upcoming extensive and difficult project that will be an obligation for students in order to graduate and I already know for a fact I am not the only one that thinks of this as just another obstacle for exhausted, stressed, & depressed teens who are just trying to graduate, while also going through a pandemic. Whether the school board intentions were for our own good or not, I am trying to reach out to the school board to inform them that it is actually quite the opposite. This project is extended and involves a lot of extra time that certain students do not have due to jobs and generally just having lives outside of school. I personally have/am dealing with depression & anxiety majority of it derives from school. I use to be an honor roll student but high school has really taken a toll on me while also dealing with stressful events in my life outside of school, however since the new semester I’ve been pushing myself to get back to work, even though the virtual learning doesn’t motivate me much at all, I just know I HAVE to graduate and now with a whole nother obstacle in front of me my anxiety is raging with fear that I won’t be able to accomplish this project and as a result not being able to graduate because of this. I know there are a great number of kids in the same mindset as me. Please help me get in contact with the board of education by signing this petition to eliminate this project as a requirement for graduation.

{Best description I can give of project at the moment. In my opinion it’s somewhat of an community service project but not exactly. We have to come up with task that contribute to a change in community. My problem is this really shouldn’t determine our graduating, I think it’s a bit unnecessary honestly. My teacher explained it but not too much in depth since it will be starting next month.}
