Message from the Guidance Department
PLEASE NOTE: Activities that were entered into x2Vol accounts before February 1, 2022 and were not verified have been denied but may be re-submitted. Please ensure a valid email address is entered for the person who is to verify your hours. If an email address is unknown, a signed paper document must be brought to the guidance office after the activity is entered so the work can be accepted. We want everyone to receive the credit, and award, you earned and deserve. As always, come to the Guidance Office if you have questions or concerns.
Community Service Requirements
Students must achieve a minimum of 40 hours of community service in order to graduate from Pearl River High School. Every school year, students who earn 25 hours or more are eligible for a community service award.
The deadline for community service awards consideration for grades 9, 10 and 11 is May 2, 2023; the deadline for seniors is May 9, 2023. You must have at least 25 hours in the current school year to be considered for an award.
The COVID pandemic has presented challenges that impact the availability of community service opportunities. Therefore, the traditional advisement of 10 hours per school year does not apply to the years 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. That said, the high school’s graduation service requirement is 20 hours for the classes of 2021, 2022 and 2023 and 30 hours for the class of 2024.
Community Service Announcement
Pearl River High School is now using an online tracking and reporting system for all service hours called x2VOL that is accessible through Naviance Student. This system eliminates the need for paper forms and centralizes the information. X2VOL allows students to enter their service hours online at any time, as well as check and register for volunteer opportunities, receive reminders about the opportunities and print a service hour log that can be used as a reference for college applications and the National Honor Society.
Current hours have been transferred to the new system for those who have completed services. From this point on, all service hours need to be entered into the x2VOL system through Naviance Student. Paper forms should no longer be submitted to the Guidance Office. The students must register as soon as possible. Please follow the instructions or click on the links below for a step-by-step tutorial and video.
First you must log in to your Naviance account. If you do not know your Naviance login credentials, please ask your counselor for help.
- Click on the x2VOL Link under “Resources” on the left-hand side of your home screen in Naviance Student.
- If you are asked to put in your Last Name and Student ID Number, please do so.
- Complete your x2VOL profile the first time you access x2VOL.
- Start logging your hours in x2VOL!
