Application Guidelines and Form

We highly suggest for all new teachers attend a Service Learning Application Workshop before applying.

Service Learning Awards are non-competitive. Schools and teachers may submit more than one service learning award application. Award applications are due in the spring, for the following school year.  Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are due May 3, 2019 by 4:00 p.m. All applicants and principals will receive a status of application letter in August of 2019. Approved schools will receive a service learning award check issued on September 10, 2019 at the annual Service Learning Event. The Service Learning Team will visit your plan once it is underway. Please keep in touch to let us know how your service learning plans are progressing. You can reach us by phone or email. Other guidelines for the application are found in the link below:
