VOLUNTEER HOURS FOR 2018-2019
The deadline for entering hours for the 2018-19 school year was March 31, 2019.
Any hours entered on Track it Forward currently will be counted toward your 2019-2020 school year hours.
This year, in an effort to make entering and tracking volunteer hours easier we are using the Track It Forward system for tracking hours. This on-line program will allow you to enter hours and then see your hours showing you how close you are to your 20 hour goal.
Every family has already been loaded into the system using your youngest student’s information. Please use their Student ID as both the username and password. The Student ID can be found on their report card or on PowerSchool.

The goal of requiring parent volunteer hours is to encourage a spirit of shared commitment among all families for the benefit of Pope Francis Global Academy. Each family is asked to complete 20 hours of service between April 1 of the current school year and March 31 of the following calendar year/same school year. After March 31, a final tally will be made of the hours logged by each family and any unmet hours will be billed at $15/hour on or near April 30. Families will have until June 1 to pay that bill on FACTS.
We prefer to not have to bill anyone, so we encourage you to pace yourself and do several hours each month so you do not come up short. Opportunities for daytime, nighttime, weekend, at-school, at-home, in the neighborhood, etc. are available. Please keep an eye out for opportunities.
