Sitka school board drops unique high school graduation requirement

A hallmark of graduation and a right of passage for Sitka high school seniors is no more. For years, students were required to undertake a challenge or learn something new before they graduated, like weaving a traditional blanket from mountain goat hair or baking a wedding cake. They had to give a presentation about their Senior Project and, up until last year, write a paper.
