East Valley Student Trying to End Senior Projects

KNDO

Rep. David Taylor of Moxee is backing a bill that would eliminate the culminating senior project from the state graduation requirements and leave it up to local school districts.

The bill is the creation of Taylor’s stepdaughter Tiffany Stewart a senior at East Valley High School who drafted the legislation as her culminating graduation project. The bill was held by the House Education Committee last week. Taylor says the measure has a lot of support.

“The principals association support it, the Washington school administrators support it and there were some citizens that spoke in favor of it. So it’s an idea that’s got some legs.”

House bill 2402 would remove the culminating senior project as a state mandated graduation requirement, effective with the graduating class of 2015. The prime sponsor of the bill is Rep. Jason Overstreet.
