Action steps are integrated into each grade level to create a comprehensive Student Service-Learning Program.
Calvert County Public Schools Student Service-Learning Program promotes the Seven Best Practices of service-learning through student involvement that meet recognized needs in the community, achieve curricular objectives, provide time for reflection throughout the experience, develop student responsibilities, establish community partnerships, plan ahead for service, and equip students with knowledge and skills needed for service. The students have real experiences in several grades within the science and social studies curricula. Both curricula reference the Voluntary State Curricula (VSC) as a foundation document. CCPS Student Service-Learning Program provides an opportunity for all children to have multiple experiences with service-learning.
