At the beginning of the 2009 school year, President Obama challenged students to work hard in school and to graduate. Later, he further encouraged schools to support students and raise graduation rates by sponsoring a contest to see which schools best support student graduation. School notice boards provide a various means for the support of seniors. That support helps students through the turmoil and stress before they graduate.

The countdown-to-graduation notice board shows the days or weeks until graduation. Along with a school-coloured, themed border and lettering, the board contains paper mascot cutouts numbered to illustrate how long before graduation. Each day or week, depending on the size of the board and how early in the year the board begins, the daily or weekly number is removed, and under it a success or graduation-related quote is revealed and remains on the board.
As graduation nears, an archives notice board holds memorabilia from the year's events. Artefacts relating to favourite television shows, fashion fads, celebrities, music, movies, pastimes and foods provide graduates with meaningful trivia related to the special year in which they graduate. The board also serves as a tool for completing yearbook pages that include such information.
Personalised mini pennants on notice boards can honour graduates throughout the year.

A photo graduation notice board provides greater interest with fun, creative photos rather than posed senior portraits. Computer software provides a tool for creating senior photos predicting future careers and endeavours in the form of magazine covers, newspaper headlines, entertainment awards and political notices. Another creative photo notice board uses software to modify photos to appear in solid colour silhouettes much like classic Warhol portraits.
A graduation notice board displaying quotes from famous people, teachers, administrators and parents provides graduates with inspiration and encouragement during the move from high school to higher education or the work world.
