Class of 2021 started this petition to Steele Canyon Administration

Eliminate the need for a senior website. With the pandemic on the rise and college apps due and an ever increasing amount of homework, seniors do not have time nor the mental capacity to finish it. Our grades and test scores are reflective of our time spent at Steele Canyon and having to do a senior interview to graduate is only a mindless addition to the already large amount of stressors our class has to manage. Additionally, it is not a genuine expression of our thoughts,feelings, and experiences at Steele Canyon as the objective most students have regarding this project is solely to pass it therefore students are not inclined to be honest about their true reflections. It is instead a waste of time and energy that students can instead dedicate to their own endeavors to actually further their goals. Almost no other schools in the district requires this for graduation. We understand that administration feels that it is preparing students for "real life" interviews and jobs. And yet it does not take into account that actual job interviews are nothing like the senior interview in that they do not ask deep resounding questions of the interviewee. Actual job interviews focus upon skillset and employment experience, not a recollection of the hardest obstacles for the interviewee as it is not appropriate. It is not a viable preparation, and instead if the school wanted to help students for the adult world they would teach students about taxes, investing, food preparations, self defense, etc. In any case if schools wanted to prepare students for the workforce in place of having a senior interview they would teach students how to apply to jobs and write official/successful resumes. Students are already struggling with classes and other issues and we see no reason that this should continue.
