Royal High Senior Project Safety Guidelines
The intent of the Senior Project is to allow high school students the opportunity for experiential learning that does not take place in the classroom. Safety is of paramount concern and we want our students to succeed in their choice of project, and to remain within the standards of safety that the District uses to evaluate all activities.
- No illegal activities will be approved.
- All coaching must be done under the supervision of a certified coach and through a sponsoring group, such as league or club.
