Cohoes students to track good deeds with Passport for Good

Passport for Good registration tableCohoes students will now be able to document and showcase, right from their phones, all of the positive efforts they bring to their school, community and themselves.

The district has partnered with Passport for Good (P4G), an application that enables students to track and create customized portfolios of their engagement in school clubs and events and the service they provide as volunteers in their community. The app also documents dozens of school requirements for experience outside the classroom, including community service, career and technical education and project-based learning.

A P4G representative and a handful of CHS student ambassadors were helping students download and navigate the app Wednesday during lunch periods.

“Cohoes High School is committed to preparing all students to be college-, career- and citizen-ready,” said High School Principal Bryan Wood. “With the help of P4G, students will be able to exhibit how they volunteer and give back to their school and community as they prepare to be successful, productive young adults.”

Through the app, students can build a non-academic transcript of their engagement hours, obtain electronic verification of the hours, and export their non-academic transcript for class/graduation requirements and college applications/scholarships.

Preparing our students for success in tomorrow’s world.
