FCPS Implements Student Civic Engagement Activity Option (12/31/2019)

Service learning is a teaching method designed to involve students in authentic and meaningful service to their communities. Service learning makes connections between the classroom and the community and provides structured time for students to reflect on their service experiences. It is intended to instill a sense of civic responsibility by encouraging students to assess their impact on the community as active contributors to society. Students can engage in a variety of activities.

How to Record Service Learning/Volunteer Hours

X2Vol:  Students track their service learning hours through x2VOL, which can be accessed through Naviance Student by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your FCPS 24/7 Learning account.
  2. Click on the “Naviance Student” icon.
  3. Scroll down and click on “x2VOL.”
  4. The first time you use x2VOL, you will need to complete your profile. Your profile should be the first screen you see. If you do not see your profile, you will be prompted to enter your last name and your student ID number.
  5. Follow the prompts to complete your profile. Some items may already be filled out.
  6. Once you have completed your profile, you will be able to access your x2VOL account through Naviance Student

Note:  Students who fulfill at least 40 hours of service learning will receive a black service learning cord to wear at graduation.  Students who fulfill at least 50 hours and meet additional requirements may apply for The Board of Education’s Seal for Excellence in Civics Education.
