Starting in April 2022, any community service hours that a student would like to be approved for in order to earn their Community Service Graduation Seal (40 total hours) must follow the process below:
Students must complete the Community Service Pre Approval form (https://forms.gle/mwUdNVDZcs7c9nMY7 )at least 48 hours prior to their community service experience. Upon completion, the student and parent will receive an email confirmation from the student’s school counselor (save this email response, you’ll need it for step #4). If the counselor approves the service experience, the student can proceed to the next step.
Students must complete the Community Service Record Form , which requires their supervisor’s signature and initials in order to approve the hours (so be sure to bring this form along with you to your service experience).
After the student completes their service opportunity, they must type up a one page reflection on how the experience impacted them and what they learned from the experience.
Now, the student is ready to submit their service hours to the Counseling Office. They must print off the email confirmation they received from their counselor (from step 1) and attach it to their Service Form (from step 2), and written reflection (from step 3)--for a total of 3 items to hand into the guidance office. If any of the three items are missing, the hours will not be accepted.
