student service Learning
Mr. William Sartori
SSL Coordinator, School Counselor
Student Service Learning (SSL) activites are intended to address a recognized need in the community and provide a learning experience for students. SSL is requried by the Maryland State Department of Education for graduation. Hours are earned through upaid service with non-profit organizations, government agencies, school clubs, and through specific school courses. There are only a few opportunities working directly with the school.
SSL hours can be earned beginning in the summer after grade 5. Students should aim to finish earning all their hours by the end of the first semester of their senior year to avoid potential problems at graduation. Students should also consider trying to earn most of their hours before the fall of their junior year when coursework becomes heavy.
