Service Learning

  • Service Learning combines meaningful service to the community WITH curriculum-based learning.

    Students earn hours for completing service projects that are part of the required curriculum during school hours in the following grades and/or courses: PASS will appear on the report card in high school when all 75 hours are completed. Students may count a maximum of 15 hours in sixth grade, 30 hours in seventh grade, 15 hours in eighth grade, and 15 hours in high school towards the 75 required hours.  All extra hours will go towards a service-learning elective credit, which is optional.


    *Possible courses embedding service-learning projects
