To meet the service-learning needs of our students during this time period, we are excited to announce that students can now earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours for virtual/remote service completed from home under the sponsorship of an approved nonprofit organization or MCPS school staff member. Students may engage in designated virtual/remote MCPS SSL opportunities until schools return to normal status. To view the temporarily amended MCPS SSL Guidelines for Virtual/Remote SSL Opportunities, please click on this link. These guidelines have been created to ensure that any virtual/remote service during this time maintains the safety and privacy of our students and adheres to the proper supervision and monitoring needed for SSL as a state graduation requirement. School-hosted virtual/remote MCPS SSL opportunities will be communicated by school staff to the students involved. Nonprofit-hosted virtual/remote MCPS SSL opportunities will be posted on the Montgomery County Volunteer Center website (www.montgomeryserves.org) and tagged with the blue MCPS SSL banner and graduation cap icon.
As a reminder, all SSL forms for service completed from the summer of 2019, 1st semester, and 2nd semester should be emailed to the school’s SSL coordinator by the systemwide due date of June 5, 2020, in order to be documented on Quarter 4 report cards. SSL documentation for continued service through the summer of 2020 will be accepted in September 2020.
Additionally, in keeping with the State Board of Education’s recommendations, all students enrolled in full-year or second-semester courses with embedded SSL during the 2019-2020 school year will earn the automatic SSL hours for the course, provided that they pass the course. No SSL hours will be removed or deleted upon successful completion of the course.
As a reminder for you and your staff, families can pick up or exchange Chromebooks and MiFi devices at 45 West Gude Drive from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. every weekday. Families should wear masks and bring their child’s student ID number with them.
