Guilford County Schools (GCS) wants every student to become involved in service-learning. GCS offers either of the following recognitions to students who dedicate time within their high school career to make an impact on the community. The Service-Learning Exemplary Award is an honor a GCS high school student who devotes a minimum of 100 hours of service-learning experience in their community over the course of their high school years, may receive upon graduation. The Service-Learning Diploma is a locally developed official recognition program designed to recognize high school students who are committed to serving their community. Students who complete 250 hours of service-learning experience over the course of their high school years will receive this certificate upon graduation.
Due to Covid-19 forcing remote learning and reduced service-learning opportunities, the following prorate is for students in the Classes of 2022 and 2023. Students in these groups who have 186 hours submitted will obtain the Service-Learning Diploma. Students in these same groups who have not attained that threshold but have submitted at least 75 hours will obtain the Service-Learning Award.
Henceforth, the original thresholds will apply for the Service-Learning Diploma (minimum 250 hours) and Service-Learning Award (minimum 100 hours).
