UPDATE: Service-Learning Prorate

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
