Hello Potential TASC Team Member,
This is the application for TASC, an alternative pathway to gaining your Senior Exit Project required credit for graduation. There are some changes to the program for this coming year of which we would like to make you aware. For the 2019-2020, school year the TASC class will now include the Senior Intern/ambassador program that formally existed as a separate class. This will allow up to eight students to participate – four each semester. The staff will also evaluate students before they are chosen to be a part of the program. There will only be three to four mentors for each semester, so class size is limited. This means enrollment in the program is competitive.
It is important that you understand the differences in the traditional Senior Exit Project and the TASC program.

If you wish to be a senior intern/ambassador you must also submit a formal letter of application outlining what specialized skills you feel you have to represent the district and a resume. If you need assistance, please see Mrs. Crim.
These written statements, this application, and a staff evaluation of the above qualities will be taken into consideration to determine TASC eligibility. Once eligible, TASC must fit into the students overall course schedule before he or she will be placed in the actual class. Students will not know if he or she is a participant until schedules are distributed. Students not in TASC will be placed in a traditional Senior Exit course to meet the graduation requirement.
Statement of Understanding Terms and Conditions
By signing I agree that I understand the application process, the requirements for the course, the student responsibilities involved and the transportation requirements. I understand this course will require time outside of the school day at least 5 times during the semester. I plan to participate in TASC if eligible, but understand that I may opt out to follow the traditional Senior Exit Project curriculum or be placed in Senior Exit due to scheduling conflicts. I also understand there is an application because there is a limited amount of seats available for the class determined by the number of community organizations willing to participate. This means enrollment in the program is competitive.
