The CHCCS Service Learning Program reopened on July 1, 2021. At that time, the pandemic appeared to be going in a better direction. We begin the 2021-2022 school year still wearing masks and socially distancing. The good news is that students are still able to get service hours.
Please note that when you go out into the community to participate in service work, we want you to adhere to all of the same procedures you would follow at your school.
The CHCCS School Board met recently and approved the waiver of Policy 3460: Graduation Requirements Section C for the 2021-22 school year. What this means is that seniors graduating in December 2021 and June 2022 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.
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 email@example.com
We will keep you posted regarding any changes in the future. Thank you and please be safe.
