INTRODUCED

HB 1221 -- Student Volunteer Opportunities

Co-Sponsors:  McClelland, Hosmer

This bill directs the State Board of Education to promote
service learning programs, which provide students with district--
approved opportunities to participate in community service
related to the students' academic studies.  Such programs may be
included as part of any credit-bearing course countable for high
school graduation.

The board must provide technical assistance for any district
wishing to implement a service learning program and must
establish a grant program for teacher training in development of
service learning projects.  The bill requires certain funding
sources for training to be used before the grant applicant
becomes eligible to apply.  The board may use funds dedicated to
critical needs to implement the program.
