Community Service


  • Reporting Hours for Community Service

    Log into Naviance at http://connection.naviance.com/carroll.

    • Click on the X2VOL tab. The first time students do this, they will need to set up their account. To begin recording hours, look on your dashboard homepage and click on the green “Add Hours” then “Create New.”
    • YOU DO NOT NEED TO CREATE AN ENTRY EVERY TIME YOU VOLUNTEER. For example, for “Activity Name,” you may type “North Texas Humane Society,” then type what you did in the “Project Description” box. Scroll down to “Activity Contact” and type in the name of the sponsor who can confirm your hours. For phone number, enter the counseling office phone number 817-949-5814 (DO NOT TYPE IN AN EMAIL ADDRESS). List the last date you served and select the total number of combined hours during that time period. Please provide a brief description as to what you did.
    • Be sure to click on the “Organization Goals” then select “Apply to All Non-Exclusive Goals” and the honesty statement before you hit “Submit.”
    • Our Counseling Office secretary, Mrs. Shela Daniel, will monitor and approve the community service hours about every 4-6 weeks. If you have applied your hours correctly in the “Apply to All Non-Exclusive Goals,” you will receive an email from Mrs. Shela Daniel.
    • If your hours have been denied, you will receive an email explaining why the hours were denied.
