FINAL DEADLINE #1 –
SIGNED LOG OF HOURS – Thursday, April 30th at the start of English class.
What you need in hand:
· Your entire TYPED log of hours, printed out.
· Your “Final Mentor Verification,” completed and signed by your mentor.
· Your mentor does not need to sign every single log entry…since most of you kept this electronically. The final verification satisfies this.
When you need it:
· In hand at the start of class on Thursday, April 30th, 2015.
· No, you cannot go print it out at the start of class.
· No, it isn’t okay to have your mentor email it to me or to submit it electronically.
I won’t see my mentor to get his/her signature?
· Not a valid excuse. No signature = Graduation in jeopardy.
· Email the document to them, ask them to print it, sign it, scan it, and send it back. And be extra polite… you’re asking them to compensate for your lack of planning. Do this NOW.
My mentor won’t sign off on my hours?
· Perhaps they have questions as to whether your hours were invested honestly, or whether you’ve actually done what your log of hours claims.
· You will not have verification of your project and may have to redo the project during summer school.
I didn’t complete the required 20 hours?
· You didn’t complete the requirements. You will be meeting with CHS administration to devise a plan for how to re-do your project during summer school.
· NOTE: There are 24 hours in a day. If you are a couple hours short, you can get this taken care of. Choose to.
I am absent on April 30th?
· Your printed, signed log of hours is due immediately on your return to class. No exceptions, no extensions.
I logged 20 or more hours, but didn’t “finish” my project?
· The April 30th deadline is for the hours log, not for the project. If you choose to continue working on your project so that it is high-quality (this is mainly for “Construct and Create” projects) you can keep working on it, but those hours do not count toward your project hours requirement. I strongly recommend that you “finish” your project to high quality in order to best represent yourself to the board. I collect your portfolios on May 14th, which is when I begin grading your project.
