Community Service

As part of the high school graduation requirements and the New World School of the Arts educational experience, students are required to perform community service throughout their high school career. In keeping with this theme, a minimum of 75 community service hours must be recorded by the end of Junior year.

All students must use the attached Community Service Activity Log Form to record their community service hours. Completed forms should be emailed to 7901-community_service@dadeschools.net. Students must obtain the signature of the adult who supervised their community service. Parents may NOT sign as a student’s supervisor. Students must use one form for each supervisor they perform community service with. It is recommended that students select one activity and one supervisor for extended periods of time (e.g., quarter, semester, or year) to reduce the number of forms that are submitted. Students who complete service hours outside of NWSA need to submit a letter from the non-profit organization on its letterhead with information about their service project (total hours, dates of completion, supervisor contact information, etc.)

Students may refer to www.handsonmiami.org for ideas about how they may help their community. Examples include, but are not limited to, tutoring, cleaning parks and beaches, preparing care packages, volunteering at animal shelters, walk-a-thons, volunteering at hospitals and nursing homes, school beautification, and many more. Additionally, the faculty and staff of New World School of the Arts will offer several opportunities throughout the year for students to participate in community service projects as part of their course, club, or society affiliation.

Code of Student Conduct

The Code of Student Conduct (COSC) is aligned to local, state, and federal mandates with an emphasis on promoting a safe learning environment to ensure academic success. The Code of Student Conduct sets the standards of conduct expected of students in a purposeful safe learning environment which the principles of care, courtesy, civility, fairness, acceptance of diversity, and respect for the rights of others is valued. It also addresses the role of the parents/guardians, the students, and school, but also focuses on core values and model student behavior, rights, and responsibilities of students, addressing student behavior, and disciplinary procedures.

Furthermore, it should also be noted that behaviors committed on or off the school campus may be violations of the COSC and may also be violations of Florida law. These violations may result in disciplinary actions imposed by local law enforcement authorities, in addition to those of the school/district. The Superintendent, principals, and other administrators shall assign discipline/corrective strategies to students pursuant to the Code of Student Conduct and, where required by law, protect the student’s due process rights to notice, hearing, and appeal.
