2019-2020 Enrollment

Incoming freshman may now enroll in IMPACT via Infinite Campus.  Enrollment will be open throughout the year.  Freshmen must enroll through their Infinite Campus account.  Parents are not able to access enrollment directly but a confirmation email will be sent to the parent/guardian listed in Infinite Campus. 

  • Students, log in to your Infinite Campus account
  • Select the blue IMPACT link, typically located under the MORE section
  • Read and review the information contained in the IMPACT Scholars document.  
  • Please note, verification emails will be sent to the email address listed in the document.  CUSD has assigned you a student email and your verification will be emailed to that address in addition to your primary parent/guardian listed in Infinite Campus.
  • Once you opt into the program, you will use the SAME link to begin submitting hours.  All hours must be submitted through this link. 
  • You may download a Community Service form (on the right side of this web page).  This is for your records only but may be asked for should there be a question or concern about your submission. 
  • Your volunteer service supervisor's email will serve as their signature.

Program Summary

In addition to classroom enrichment, Chandler Education Foundation is committed to investing in our future by providing CUSD high school students with experiences that directly engage them in strengthening our community. The IMPACT Chandler Scholars program requires a student’s formal commitment in their freshman year:

Students commit to:

  • maintain a 3.4 or greater GPA

  • cumulative attendance at 95% or greater 

  • submit at least 35 hours of community service* before the first day of their junior year

  • submit at least 100 hours of community service* before April 1st of their senior year

Students who fulfill all program requirements are considered IMPACT Scholars and receive additional honors at graduation including letters of recommendation and an honor cord to wear with their cap and gown. 

IMPACT Chandler Scholars are then considered eligible to apply for an IMPACT Scholarship.  In years past, this scholarship has been approximately $1,000 per award and is based upon available funding each year. 

In 2019, the Foundation awarded over $72,000 in IMPACT Scholarships.

 

 


 

*IMPACT Chandler Scholars program participants are asked to volunteer in their community.  We encourage students to volunteer for a variety of organizations.  Volunteer hours will not be credited for service provided at a faith-based organization where volunteer time does not benefit the broader community. Please contact us further clarification is needed.
