CSF stands for the California Scholastic Federation. We are a scholastic club with a community service element. There are scholastic qualifications to be part of this club. Please see the CSF application to see if you qualify. You can be a member of CSF without participating in the community service portion, however you will not be considered an "active" member. Non-active members can not qualify for as many awards at the end of their senior year as the active members. We encourage all members to be active, but please be aware that if your schedule can not accommodate attending the community service events, then we suggest being a non-active member. We only allow three unexcused absences per semester. If you have more than three, then you will not be active for CSF for that particular semester. In order to qualify as an active member you must attend the meetings and get 10 hours of CSF sponsored community service per semester. Talk to an officer or go to our Facebook page, Great Oak CSF, where our president has posted a continuous list of CSF-approved community service events.

CSF Community Service
In order to keep the integrity of being a CSF member, our club requires that in order to be an "active" member of CSF, you must perform your CSF community service hour requirements with the club at CSF club sponsored events. Each week at the meeting we provide a list and explanation of the upcoming opportunities of CSF sponsored events. In addition, the events are posted on the CSF facebook page and on this website in the minutes section and the events section. If you have an event you want to be CSF approved, please use the CSF approval form below.
You can still be a member of CSF without being active, solely based on your GPA. See the awards section to understand how that can affect your senior award status.
Here are the requirements for being an "active" member for CSF"
*10 hours of CSF approved events
*only 2 hours can be from donations
*Regular attendance at the Tuesday lunch meetings (you may have up to 3 unexcused absences)
Contact the secretaries if you are going to be absent.
All community service hours need to be in a "CSF sponsored" event. This means you must get approval before the event takes place or you perform the hours in order for it to be counted as CSF approved. Click on the following form to apply for an event you want to be approved:
Community Service Form - Please bring this form with you when you complete your hours in order to get the supervisor to sign you off!!! Mrs. Arban and Mrs. Ricken can not sign you off on something that we did not see you at.
