Policy 2414 - SERVICE LEARNING

The board of directors recognizes that volunteering connects students to their communities and provides an opportunity for students to practice and apply their academic and social skills in preparation for entering the workforce and provides a way to contribute to and make an impact on the community.  The board further recognizes that service learning is associated with increased civic awareness and participation by students, and can inspire students to continue their education and skill development beyond high school.  Students are encouraged to participate in service learning activities as a part of their high school learning experience and/or career goal. The board will implement an incentive program to recognize students for achievement in service learning at the school and district level. While service learning is not a new graduation requirement, students are encouraged to integrate service learning into their culminating and/or senior projects.
