Family Resources

"Family members are a child's first and most important teachers. A growing body of research demonstrates that when families are actively engaged in their child's learning, children are better prepared for school and achieve at higher levels. Increased participation by families in pre-kindergarten programs has also been linked to greater academic motivation and stronger social and emotional skills among all children, regardless of ethnic and socioeconomic background."

Service Learning..

What is Service Learning?

Service learning is a teaching strategy that connects classroom curriculum with service projects and hours.  Service learning engages students in activities that serve the community while building social, civic, and academic skills.

Service Learning is a way to:

  • Learn effective problem solving, critical thinking and project management skills
  • Strengthen your academic and social skills 
  • Learn about potential careers
  • Meet amazing people that you wouldn't normally meet
  • Gain a sense of accomplishment
  • Do something good for your community and yourself

Students may not earn service-learning credit through the following:

  • Work for a family member
  • Work with for-profit businesses and corporations
  • Work with religious organizations if the service involves promoting a particular faith
  • Volunteer work where no academic objective is addressed
  • Work that is financially reimbursed

Students may not earn hours for the following specific activities:

  • Participation in a sports team or other extra-curricular activity unless that group designs an acceptable service-learning project 
  • Assisting a teacher (i.e. correcting papers, cleaning the classroom)
  • Artistic performances unless students are involved in creating a project that includes a performance as an outcome of the project
  • Attending a training or other educational event unless that training leads directly to a service project

Who can I go to with questions about Service Learning?

Your service learning coach is Ms. Keenon (keenonM@cpsboe.k12.oh.us).  She is available to guide you through your service learning experience. Email her with any questions or concerns.
