New class replaces Senior Seminar for Everett School District high school students

To give students the time, space, tools and place to develop necessary skills, the district is replacing Senior Seminar and its Culminating Exhibition with College and Career Readiness Seminar.

In an effort to better prepare graduates for life after high school, the Everett School District is changing the curriculum.

The “Senior Seminar” and “Culminating Exhibition” now required in senior year will be replaced with a “College and Career Readiness Seminar,” which can be taken in either the junior or senior years.
