The Arkansas Department of Education has received funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service for the School-Based Learn and Serve America Program. Learn and Serve America supports service-learning programs in schools and community organizations throughout the nation. This program combines service to the community with student learning in a way that improves both the student and the community.
Act 648 of 1993 states that beginning with the 1996-97 school year, "a student who has completed a minimum of seventy-five (75) clock hours of documented community service in grades nine (9) through twelve (12), at any certified service agency or a part of a service-learning school program shall be eligible to receive one (1) academic credit that may be applied toward graduation."
