Let me get this straight. (community service) Update in red.
WE spent a great afternoon (6 hours total) splitting wood for our church camp. They have a LEEP (Lutheran Environmental Education Program) that includes a tour of a Straw house with a Masonary Heater which requires wood to be split a certain way. We split a nice stack of wood for them and had the LEEP coordinator sign off on our community service for the day.
When I was telling our evaluator about the service that we had done, she responded by telling me that since it was a church organization it is not truly community service.
So what is community service, why is it required, and what does it do?
Update: The homeschooling liason says that any community service meets the requirement. She is going to speak to our evaluator because she hopes this is not going to make others of her homeschoolers to fight the rule. She said that she fought to not add the rule, but the superintendent wants some kind of grant. (LOL!! Oh that just makes everything feel a little slimier.) If he can show over a certain number of community service hours, he can get a state grant.
