Community Service Learning
Serve your community and earn a credit towards graduation!
Community Service Learning is an approach to teaching and learning in which students use academic knowledge and skills to address genuine community needs. Learn more about Community Service Learning from the district's slide deck.
As a way to help foster civic responsibility, Arkansas Act 648 allows students to earn one credit towards graduation after completing 75 hours of approved community service learning over their high school career (Class of 2024-2026). Starting with the Class of 2027, 75 hours of approved CSL will be required for graduation.
To qualify for the credit, students must document their preparation, action, and reflection using the documentation form below:
