Eric, Henrico county and eleven other cities and counties pay for slots for their students to attend Maggie Walker regional governor's school.  Maggie Walker has a mandatory community service requirement to earn a high school diploma.  It might interest Henrico County Public Schools ("HCPS") to know that Maggie Walker students, regardless of the home school system, receive community service credit toward their diploma by mentoring FLL teams and assisting at tournaments.  FLL related activities have been approved at Maggie Walker since at least 2006 when I began enlisting their students to mentor FLL teams.  Phil Tharp, Director of Administration at Maggie Walker was my contact.

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] FLL and Henrico County Schools Community Service - need help.


> My daughter's High School has denied approval for her community service work
> at the FLL Maggie Walker tournament for what seems like dubious reasons.
> (Deep Run High School).
> 
> For example: 
> 
> What exactly was the charity work she did?  Well she did work for a
> 501(c)(3) which is a charity so by definition the work is charity
> 
> The Event wasn't specifically designated for minority or underserved
> children was it? As they acknowledge that FLL benefits those specific types
> of children.  
> 
> I have appealed to the county and the county is defending the actions of the
> HS.  I am aware of other HS young adults getting approval at Maggie Walker
> for Henrico Community Service Hours. 
> 
> Frankly I'm a bit shocked by the whole thing. So are FLL staff that I have
> communicated with.
> 
> I have reviewed the written rules and FLL qualified on all counts - see
> http://www.henrico.k12.va.us/students/volunteer.html
> 
> I'd like to hear if other young adults have been approved for FLL, FTC or
> FRC volunteer hours (my daughter volunteers at all 3) or if you are aware of
> denials as well.  I'm trying to build a case on consistency and fairness.
> They have rules, don't go beyond the rules. I don't need the names of the
> people just the high school involved and the action that the school took.
> 
> Advice and information about other Young Adult volunteer hours is welcome.

> Thanks
