HSTA 2021-2022 Overview


You will earn attendance credit by attending club meetings in person and/or online and completing activities. Your HSTA Teacher will discuss how meetings will be conducted during your first HSTA meeting. Per policy, you need to attend at least 70% of your meetings. Note that club meetings are set up to prepare you to complete your annual community-based research project.

Community Service

You need 75 community service by December of your senior year. Check with your HSTA Teacher and Field Site if an opportunity counts towards community service. HSTA will offer a few online opportunities to earn community service hours – check the websites for dates and times. If you are a freshman, completing your CITI training will earn you three community hours – remember to email your CITI certificate to your Field Site. Keep track of the community service hours you complete. Make sure to turn your community service sheets into your Field Site. Use this page and the back to keep track of hours. You can also keep a copy of your hours in your notebook or email.
Remember you need 75 hours to graduate from the HSTA Program.

HSTA Meetings

HSTA will be in person unless otherwise directed by your HSTA teacher. If COVID related events happen, you will have a printed notebook, a kit full of supplies, and access to a copy of the notebook online to help you stay on track with HSTA. Use the next few pages to write down club meetings dates and times as well as deadlines.
