• UPDATE: Service-Learning Prorate

    The following prorate is for the Class of 2023 only:

    Proration: The following proration will be followed.

    Service-Learning Diploma  

    Students who have 186 hours submitted will obtain the Service-Learning Diploma.  

    • Students typically have 185 weeks (Freshman year to Service-Learning Senior deadline including summers) to earn the 250 hours towards the Service-Learning Diploma which equals an average of 1.35 hours per week.  250/185 = 1.35 
    • Students in high school during the mandatory COVID-19 at-home learning time have had a reduced opportunity to obtain service-learning hours. Based on this, we are prorating the requirement by 64 hours equaling 186 hours. Students did not have the opportunity for in-school experiences for 47 weeks. 185-47=138  138 x 1.35 = 186 

    Service-Learning Award  

    Students in High School during COVID-19 who have submitted 75 hours will obtain the Service-Learning Award.  

    • Based on the above logic, the service-learning award would be reduced from 100 hours to 75 hours. 100/185 = .54   138 x .54 = 75 

     

    Students in the Class of 2024 and later will go back to normal Service Learning Expectations:

    Diploma: 250 hours

    Award: 100 hours

  • When participating in Service-Learning experiences, we expect students to:

    1.  Find an agency/organization/SEHS club that is connected with your interests and that will provide you an opportunity to make positive changes in your school or community.

    2.  Discuss what you would like to do with your parents and get their approval.

    3.  Complete the Service-Learning Approval Form and discuss your interests with the agency/organization/club. These forms are available online and in our Guidance Office.

    4.  Finalize your proposal and have your selected agency/organization/ SEHS club’s adult representative and your parents sign the Service-Learning Approval Form - giving you permission to conduct your service-learning experience.
