Community Service Learning

  • Community Service Learning

    Community Service Learning is an approach to teaching and learning in which students use academic knowledge and skills to address genuine community needs.

    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 (grades 9-12).

    To qualify for the credit, students must complete their service learning with a certified service agency or as part of a service-learning school program and document their preparation, action, and reflection.
