Seniors that meet all of the eligibility requirements listed below may apply to participate in an internship during the fourth quarter.  An approved internship allows students to be released from some or all of their classes in order to pursue an alternative educational experience.  The program will be graded for successful completion of the outlined responsibilities and obligations.  All senior paper requirements must be met in accordance with the individual English teacher’s prescribed deadlines.  Students enrolled in AP courses are expected to keep up with the class work and take the AP exam while participating in the internship program.  Students not meeting the deadlines for their senior paper will be pulled from their internship and will return to classes and will be responsible for all missed work.  Students not meeting deadlines for Internship may be pulled from the program as well, and will be responsible for all missed work.
