As part of Woodland School District's graduation requirements, as well as required components of the Washington State High School and Beyond, WSD has developed the Culminating Project. This project spans the course of a student's high school career. This will be a culmination of who the student is and what they have learned. Each step in this process is designed to help them develop a post-high school plan for a Career, Life, and College which becomes the why in this Culminating Project. You will find helpful information and the necessary forms on the left-hand side of this page.

 Please send questions to  sturdivm@woodlandschools.org
