Columbia Secondary School: Community Service Drupal Module

I worked with the Assistant Principal in developing a Community Service module for the student college preparation program. The school’s Drupal database not only served as the content management system for the external website but also contained the student, faculty and parent directories, as well as student progress data that would be integrated into a college application report.

The Community Service module included a Google forms input for students, parents and organizations to suggest appropriate opportunities and provide contact details and requirements and/or level of interest. This data was then integrated into a database of opportunities which could be searched by students. Workflow controls allowed the recipient organization to accept and then track hours served by the student, which would output as a report for college applications.

I evaluated the form data and made suggestions, then helped to diagram a workflow process for the system. I also helped keep the external website up to date.
