The Service Learning Graduation Requirement The Student Volunteer Service Program
The School Board of Broward County, Florida has incorporated Service Learning and volunteer service into the high school graduation requirements. Any student who wishes to earn a standard diploma must meet the graduation requirement of 40 documented hours in the Student Volunteer Service Program. The website bcps.browardschools.com/schools/service_learning.htm will allow access to the rules governing exactly what will be accepted as service learning/volunteer service hours and what won’t, the log sheets necessary to document hours and the Service Application and Approval Form (used when a student is not performing a service as part of
a school sponsored organization).
