Graduation Requirements

Jainesha Pooler started this petition to Dayton Board of Education

My name is Jainesha Pooler,I'm currently a senior at Dunbar Early College, and the problem is that this previous November, it was brought to our attention, we have a capstone project to do by April. My classmates and myself think that this is not only unfair but not required by the State of Ohio. Up until November of this year we were under the assumption that our graduation requirements dealt with a state test, credits, and other courses we needed to take. Now After 11 years and some months the district is mandating we complete a capstone class or we can not graduate. They never gave us heads up in our Junior year, and to make things worse, we don't even have a capstone class, our teachers are still required to teach their subject and not the capstone. All these years we thought there were certain requirements that needed to be done before graduation, and I know a lot us made sure those requirements were met, and now this was thrown up in our face. it just thrown a lot of us off track.
