b. Service-Learning Office:
a. What is service learning
b. Changes in requirement
Class of 2019 :
Hours completed and certified by August 1, 2018.
Class of 2016:  From Mr. Bottomly,
Service Learning hours are a graduation curriculum requirement that Casady reports on all transcripts to colleges in the application process.
If a Casady student has few hours (of the 45) reported on their transcript (at the time of college application submission), then the college may see that as a student who has not taken this requirement seriously.  This will probably not negatively impact an admission decision, but it might.  
If a student has not completed his or her service learning hours by graduation, then that senior's final transcript will be frozen by the college counseling office and not submitted until the hours are complete.  A frozen transcript can be very bad for a matriculating student.  He or she may not be able to be able to participate in freshman college orientation programs, and, therefore, not  able to enroll in classes and move into their dorm room.
