Service Learning High School Requirements


MPS High School Service Learning Requirements:

As a high school student you may be thinking, how do I find time to participate in service learning? 
You are only required to complete 10 hours of service learning during your high school career.  These
hours should be completed before taking United States Government & Economics -or- Advanced Placement® United States Government & Politics in 11th or 12th grade. 
Here are additional thoughts to keep in mind:

  • You may start logging your service learning hours the summer prior to 9th grade in your Personal Learning Plan in Family Connections
  • In all your required high school social studies courses, you will reflect each year on your service learning progress and record your experiences in your Personal Learning Plan.
  • Your service learning hours should be completed before beginning the United States Government & Economics -or- Advanced Placement® United States Government & Politics courses in 11th or 12th grade.  In these classes you will complete a culminating project and engage in conversations with your peers to connect your service learning experience(s) to the class and further define the meaning of civic engagement and responsibility.
