• Covid-19 Update

    In March 2020, we had to suspend the Service Learning Program due to the COVID-19 virus.  As we now have moved into Fall, the virus remains, and students are still not able to physically participate in district programs.

    The CHCCS School Board met several weeks ago and approved the waiver of Policy 3460: Graduation Requirements Section C for the 2020-21 School Year.  What this means is that students graduating in December 2020 and June 2021 will not be required to complete the 25 service learning hours in order to graduate. Students graduating with 100 service
    learning hours will continue to be recognized at graduation.

    We understand that there were students who did participate in community service work during the time the CHCCS Service Learning Program was closed.  While those hours cannot be applied to your student account, they can be used on a student's resume.  

    The way we add virtual service learning opportunities into LetServe is the same as when opportunities were only in-person.  Please review the Service Learning website to see what all can or cannot count toward service hours. We welcome your input and ideas for adding additional virtual service programs to LetServe. Laura Conner, who works in the Volunteer Department, will be working with the Service Learning Program this year.  Feel free to contact her with any questions pertaining to the service program at lconner@chccs.k12.nc.us

    We will keep you posted regarding any changes in the future.  Thank you and please be safe.

What is Service Learning?

  • Service Learning is a teaching-learning method that connects meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, personal growth, and civic responsibility. Students who graduate from high school in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools District must fulfill a Service Learning requirement.

    The purpose of Service Learning is to provide students the opportunity to have a positive impact on our local community. Service Learning allows students to expand their horizons and foster meaningful relationships with others in their community.  


    CHCCS uses a service learning-management system called LetServe which allows students to log their Service Learning Hours on a computer or from a smartphone. Each student has been set up with a LetServe Account.
