The Senior Project is designed to actively engage seniors in a "real life" experience during their senior year. All seniors (400+) are required to participate and receive a quarterly grade for the full year. Whether involved in Internship or Community Service students work with a sponsor. Students are involved in multiple Senior Project workshops throughout the first semester and fulfill the project hour’s requirements and Senior English requirements during the second semester. Students are responsible to register for the project, generate a working resume, locate a sponsor (300+), submit a contract, a final hours log and prepare an oral presentation. The culmination of the project is the Annual Senior Project Fair.The Senior Project database, originally created by Danielle Casamassina in 2000 using Microsoft ACCESS, is instrumental to the administration and success of the program. Student progress is tracked using dates related to participation in workshops and deadlines for paperwork. The database is also used to communicate with students, sponsors, parents, English teachers and administration in the form of reports and letters. The database realignment project has realigned the main table to create a relational database; created a report that will generate letter to sponsors upon receipt of contracts and final paperwork in a more efficient and timely manner; has generated multiple Switchboards to access the more commonly used queries, forms and reports in a more “user friendly” manner; has identified functions such as “Is Null”, Default Value Options, Lookup Wizards for more effective use of the database; has reorganized parts of the database to increase efficiency related to data input using forms, queries and reports; has generated Sub Forms Report for Student Input Tables which incorporate the Student Information and Sponsor Information tables; and has generated a comprehensive Sponsor table that will hold information on all previous and future sponsors to be used for assisting current students with placements and decreasing manual input of data. Please note that the CAP contains screen captures from the actual database with bulleted descriptions explaining the work that was done to achieve the desired outcomes. Hours were spent researching within the ACCESS program and utilizing a trial and error approach to modify the existing database. The Senior Project database is a continual work in progress based on the needs of the program. All modifications have been designed to improve the efficiency in which it operates relative to data input, assessment and reporting.
