The service learning course gives the student the opportunity to perform a service for the school in a variety of ways, along with giving them an educational experience from performing that service. Students are given tasks by the instructor that would be of value to both the student and themselves. Examples would be copy machine use, filing, bulletin boards, web page updates, along with other possibilities. Some service learning experiences that we offer here at DRHS would include teacher aide, office aide, library aide, computer lab aide, and other positions that might be determined by the office and the student. The student can earn one-quarter credit per term, with a total of one credit being able to be used towards graduation. The course is a pass/fail course. Students are asked to apply for a service learning position with an instructor. The instructor is the best one to determine if there is a need and if the student applying would be a good fit for the situation. There will be a list posted of service learning opportunities and students can apply for those positions.
