8290 COMMUNITY SERVICE COMPONENT OF THE PARTICIPATORY GOVERNMENT COURSE
All students enrolled in a Participatory Government Course or an Advanced Placement Government Course in the Williamsville Central School District will be required to complete at least 20 hours of community service as part of the course requirement. These 20 hours will be assessed/graded by the teacher as he or she deems appropriate. If the student does not fulfill all, or part of, the community service requirement, the student should not "fail the course" based on this requirement alone. In addition, the 20 hours of community service must coincide with the enrollment in the course. Community service completed in the summer is not acceptable as fulfillment of these hours unless the student is enrolled in the Participatory Government course in summer school at the time. *
*This policy will be reviewed when our district's performance standards and content standards are developed for the Participatory Government course.
