M-DCPS and FL. STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENT (From American Senior High Homepage, via-,) For students in the 24 credit option, the completion of a community service project is an additional graduation requirement regardless of their date of entry into 9th grade. Students in either one of the 18 credit options are not required to complete a community service project. However, one of the requirements for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program’s Academic Scholars Award is 75 hours of community service. To complete the community service graduation requirement for Miami-Dade County Public Schools, each student must complete an authorized community service project. The project can be completed at any time between grades nine and twelve. However, students are strongly encouraged to complete the project prior to their senior year. No set number of service hours is required for the project unless the student is working toward the Florida Academic Scholars Award, Superintendent’s Diploma of Distinction, or the silver tassel. A minimum of 75 hours of service is required for the Florida Academic Scholars Award and the Superintendent’s Diploma of Distinction. A minimum of 100 hours of community service is required to receive a silver tassel. A letter from the project supervisor on company letterhead verifying the hours is also required. Community service projects should be well-planned, organized, voluntary efforts designed to address real problems or needs in the community. In addition, it should reflect personal interests and skills and include an on-going commitment on the part of the student. Projects can be conducted at school sites or be community-based, and may be completed in anindividual or group manner. To receive credit, all students must submit a Project Proposal for authorization, and follow up with an Activity Log for verification of service. Finally, students are required to complete the Project Summary Report with an essay describing the project. All documents are to be submitted for review and approval to authorized school personnel. If community hours are completed outside of school, a letter must be submitted verifying the community service attached to the Project Summary Report (if a student is working towards one or more of the three distinctions previously described requiring 75 hours or more of community service). In lieu of independent projects as described above, students may elect to meet the community service requirement by completing course requirements for Voluntary /School/Community Service (210433001 0.5 credit; social studies elective) or Voluntary Public Service (050037001 0.5 credit), if available. For further information about the guidelines, see the student’s assigned school counselor.
