Service as Action
 

Service as Action Requirements, Grades 6-10

All students in grades 6 through 10 are required to do community service hours.  After they do their community service, they must also write a reflection on what they learned through this experience.

Services as Action Grades 6-10

Middle and high school students in grades 6-10 will record their community service hours in their Career Information Systems (CIS) account.  Students can access their CIS account through the Student Bookmarks Tab on their Chromebooks or students who use their own computer can go to this link where they will be directed to log into their BSD account and should be able to access all bookmarks from there.  These slides show how to log hours into the CIS account and then students should make sure to write their reflection using a Google the form found here
