  5. Where can the Service Learning hours be completed?
    Service Learning hours must be completed for a non-profit company or charity group, a school, city or state agency, or a licensed nursing home or daycare.  If a student is not sure an organization qualifies, please seek approval before completing the hours. Helping a neighbor with babysitting or mowing their lawn does not qualify for service learning.

    Service Learning paperwork should be turned in to the locked drop box in the Assistant Principals' office once the form has been completed & signed off on.
  7. Is Service Learning a graduation requirement?
    YES!!  Service Learning is a graduation requirement; if students do not complete service learning hours they will be denied a diploma. Additonally, work permits may be denied or revoked, and student athletes may not be permitted to play in league contests.
  8. Can a student be paid for the hours completed?
    NO.  Service Learning hours must be 100% voluntary.  No compensation of any kind is allowed.
  9. Can students miss school to complete the required Service Learning hours?
    No, unless the event is sponsored by RCHS or WUSD.
  10. Can students complete multiple years' requirements in one year?
    Yes! 
  11. Is there a penalty for  students who do not complete the required number of hours?
    Yes.  Seniors that have not completed Service Learning hours by the deadlines may have to appeal to have the deadline extended.  See Assistant Principal Rodgers for the appeal process if you fall under this category.  In addition, Seniors will not receive a diploma and may be unable to participate in the graduation ceremony, as well as other Senior-specific events. All students can be denied a work permit or can have it revoked.  In addition, student athletes will be unable to play in league contests until the hours are brought current.  This means that if a Sophomore is playing football and hasn't any hours, that student cannot play in league football games until at least 8 hours of Service Learning have been completed.
  12. Who does a student contact if he or she has questions about the Service Learning requirement?
    Please contact Mrs. Desmangles via email at sdesmangles@wusd.k12.ca.us or Assistant Principal Mr. Guerra at nguerra@wusd.k12.ca.us.
