New Procedures for Service Learning Hours

Please follow these new procedures when completing individual service learning hours:

1) ALL service learning hours completed during the months of November 2017 thru June 2018 MUST be pre-approved by Mrs. Mah before proceeding with the service learning event.  Please see Mrs. Mah during SL Office Hours (Mondays and Wednesdays, 3:00pm-3:30pm, in room 332) for pre-approval of the service learning event.  To help facilitate the pre-approval process, please complete and bring with you the SL Preparation Form (which can be downloaded under "Forms") and verification of the organization's non-profit status.

2) The pre-approval process for service learning hours is not needed if the volunteer hours are completed through one of the following methods:

a) School-sponsored service learning events through service clubs         like the Key Club, the National Honor Society, the Conservation           Club, etc.

b) Service Learning events listed on the "Opportunities" link

c) Service Learning events completed through one of the non-profit         organizations on our "Approved List of Non-Profits".  This list can       be viewed  and downloaded under "Forms". 

3) At the completion of the service learning experience, complete the online reflection form BEFORE bringing the signed SL Student Agreement form, the SL Student Timesheet form, and the SL Student Checklist to Mrs. Mah during SL Office Hours (Mondays and Wednesdays, 3:00pm-3:30pm, in room 332). NOTE: Students will have up to TWO (2) months from the end date of the service learning experience to complete the online reflection form and to turn-in the appropriate paper forms. 

4) Service learning hours completed between June 16, 2017 to October 31, 2017 will have until December 15, 2017 to complete the online reflection form and to submit all service learning paper forms.

Have Questions about service learning hours, need to drop off your service learning paper forms, or need pre-approval of your service learning hours?

Come to office hours every Monday and Wednesday from 3:00pm-3:30pm in room 332!  

NOTE: DO NOT PLACE ANY SERVICE LEARNING FORMS IN MRS. MAH's MAILBOX.  THANK YOU!

A Few Final Thoughts

*Service learning hours are entered and verified monthly. Please allow ample time for verification and entry of your SL hours to be reflected on your transcript.

*Failure to receive pre-approval of your service learning  hours will result in no entry of your hours.

*Failure to turn-in the service learning hour paper forms and complete the online reflection form by the TWO-MONTH due date will result in no entry of your hours.

*Accepted hours MUST meet the CPS Board of Education requirements and be verified by the SL Coach.
