Students gain skills to succeed and create powerful connections when they participate in community service. But too often, students and staff track and verify these experiences with paper, pencils and endless spreadsheets.
In this edWebinar, you’ll learn how several school districts have ditched this antiquated approach and implemented a digital system that has captured thousands of hours of community service in one year while celebrating students and their impact. This comes as states are required to incorporate a non-academic indicator as part of their state ESSA accountability plans. Community service is a non-academic indicator that several states are using.
You will walk away from this presentation understanding how to create a community service program that empowers both students and staff, how to seamlessly track and verify volunteering, and the kind of data and insights they can present to different stakeholders to tout public education’s economic impact on communities. You’ll also learn how switching from paper and pencil to a digital system will help staff focus more on students and less on paper-based processes.
This edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
