Council Statement

The CSL Advisory Council will review, advise, and make recommendations on state service-learning programs and policies to promote academically meaningful, sustained, and high quality service-learning experiences throughout students' schooling. In this capacity, the Council will serve as a resource to both the Board of Education and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in Massachusetts.

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.
