Summer SSL Pre-Approval Requests
If you are looking to get pre-approval for service over the summer, follow the steps listed below:
myMCPS Portal: SSL Hours Now Available
MCPS students must complete a certain number of Student Service Learning (SSL) hours for graduation. To help students and their families monitor the number of hours they have earned as compared to the requirement, upgrades to the Grade History report in the myMCPS Portal (in Chrome) have been made to include SSL hours information. Students and parents can view this information by selecting Grade History from the navigation menu. SSL information will be displayed at the top of the report.
MCPS SSL Guidelines
- The Girl Scout Council Of The Nation's Capital and The Boy Scouts Of America, National Capital Area Council are MCPS SSL approved organizations as indicated on the Montgomery County Volunteer Center website:
- MCPS students may earn SSL hours for the approved activities that are listed in this organization’s profile in the “SSL Not Recruiting” section at the bottom of the page. Only service activities that benefit the greater community are eligible for SSL hours. Any troop activities that exclusively benefits a troop (such as den/troop meetings, recognition events, team building activities, or supporting other local troops) are not eligible for SSL hours.
