Community  Involvement  Guidelines   Edward  Little  High  School   Auburn  School  Department,  Auburn,  ME     Purpose:  The  Auburn  School  Department  recognizes  that  important  learning  does  occur  outside  of   school.    The  community  is  our  classroom,  and  we  recognize  that  a  civic  responsibility  for  all  citizens  is  to   be  involved  in  the  community.    Twenty-­‐four  (24)  community  involvement  hours  are  required  for   graduation.    All  activities  must  receive  prior  approval.    These  hours  give  students  an  opportunity  to  learn   in  their  community  classroom,  to  experience  their  role  as  a  productive  community  member,  to  give  back   to  their  community,  and  to  share  their  talents  and  time  with  others.     Guidelines  for  Community  Involvement  Activities:   1. Community  involvement  hours  are  voluntary  hours  given  by  the  student  and  the  hours  are  not   compensated.       2. The  activity  should  be  performed  on  the  student’s  own  time  (with  the  exception  of  hours  obtained   on  Community  Day).       3. The  activity  cannot  be  one  that  primarily  benefits  the  class  (e.g.,  semi-­‐formal,  prom)  or  an  activity   that  directly  benefits  the  student.   4. An  adult  supervisor  must  verify  the  activity.   5. If  the  involvement  includes  a  service  that  is  provided  for  a  relative,  friend  or  neighbor,  there  must   be  hardship  or  physical  disability  that  warrants  granting  community  involvement  credit.    The   school  will  make  the  final  decision/approval.       6. If  a  service  is  provided  for  a  profit-­‐making  agency  (e.g.,  nursing  home,  hospital),  the  service  cannot   displace  a  hired  worker  or  take  a  position  that  would  normally  exist.   7. Activities  must  be  approved  in  advance.     8. Students  must  submit  documentation  with  the  on-­‐site  supervisor’s  signature  that  they  have   completed  their  activity.   9. Students  will  write  a  reflection  on  each  activity.    The  reflection(s)  must  be  appropriate  and   acceptable.    Alternative  methods  of  presentation  (such  as  an  exit  interview)  may  be  considered  on   a  case-­‐by-­‐case  basis.   10. Community  involvement  requirements  will  be  met  when  the  individual  written  reflections  are   approved.     Community  Involvement  Q  &  A:   1. Can  community  involvement  time  in  another  state  or  communities  count?   a. Yes,  but  all  activities  must  be  pre-­‐approved  at  school  and  verified  by  an  on-­‐site  supervisor.   2. If  a  student  is  a  member  of  a  school  group  or  organization  that  is  excused  from  classes  in  order  to   participate  in  a  special  service  activity  during  the  school  day  and  the  activity  runs  into  the  hours   after  school,  can  the  student  count  he  afterschool  hours?   a. Yes,  but  only  the  afterschool  hours.    If  also  must  be  over  and  above  those  hours  required  by   the  group.   3. Can  a  student  who  uses  Learning  Labs  to  go  to  help  at  the  elementary  schools  count  that  time  as   community  involvement?   a. Yes,  with  prior  approval.   4. When  can  I  start  my  community  involvement  hours?   a. Spring  of  freshmen  year   5. Can  students  earn  community  involvement  hours  without  prior  approval?   a. Students  may  submit  a  community  involvement  activity  after  the  fact  without  prior   approval.    The  ultimate  decision  will  rest  with  the  school.    As  explanation  of  the  uniqueness   and  exceptional  condition  must  be  submitted.
