Work of the Council
Plan for 2012-2013
The CSL Council will continue to provide guidance and recommendations about how service-learning can support the Department's and the Board's goals. The CSL Council will 1) identify examples where service-learning is being used and make recommendations for furthering the use of service-learning as a strategy to support high school graduation initiatives and in the implementation of MassCore; and 2) make recommendations for using service-learning at all grade levels to support students' development of the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to be college and career ready.
