SERV Program to Be Proposed at School Board
Tuesday, October 21, 2008 : School Board Commissioner Jane Kim held a press conference yesterday to introduce the Student Emergency Response Volunteers program (SERV), saying it is a viable alternative to the JROTC programs scheduled to be phased out by the end of this school year.
The first-of-its-kind program would offer elective credit similar to that offered by the JROTC program, but minus the military connection. Instead, SERV would educate students on the creation of disaster plans, as well as familiarizing them with the disaster plans already in place for the City of San Francisco and their particular school.
