Timesheets and Reporting

As an AmeriCorps member (and supervisor), you are required to complete bi-weekly timesheets through the OnCorps reporting system, quarterly progress reports and submit at least one Reflection of Service.
Progress Reports and Action Plans
Action Plan - Download a Template (below). There is also a sample to view. Action Plans are completed by Members and Supervisors together and are due 3 weeks after the start of service. This is the tool we use to be sure you have a plan in place to complete all your service requirements successfully! These can be revised as needed at any time during your service.
3 Progress Reports - Due January 15, April 15, and at the end of your service.  Reports are cumulative from the start of your service. By reporting in this way, we get a better picture of the number of new students are being tutored each quarter, and how many volunteers are returning.   
Show off what you've really accomplished at your site - brag, include stories and quotes from people, share articles.  These are shared with our state office and the Corporation for National and Community Service so it's great to share a lot and show off all that you have done. Progress reports should be submitted to Laura Paella (laura.paella@dpi.wi.gov) by 5:00pm the day they are due.
Member Timesheets - OnCorps
All members and supervisors will be enrolled in the OnCorps system to complete (member) and approve (supervisor) timesheets on a bi-weekly basis. To access the system for the first time, go to: http://www.americorpswi.orgFrom the drop down box, select the 2011-2012 program year. Scroll down to DPI Service for Learning and Life. Members click "members" and Supervisors click "site supervisor." You should have received an email from DPI with your OnCorps login name. Your initial password is 12345. The system will ask you to change your password after the first time you login. When members submit timesheets, supervisors should receive an email with a direct link to OnCorps. 
Categories include: Training, Community Service, Tutoring and Mentoring, Volunteer Management, and Other Service. The timesheets also have space for description, this is a good tool to keeping your supervisor informed and a logged history of what you did during your service. If you have any questions or concerns, let us know!
Service Reflections
All members will submit at least one Reflection for the Service Stories Book from Serve Wisconsin that will be available on line. Before submitting your 500 word or less story, think about your service experience and describe its impacts on the people you serve and yourself. Reflect on what you do, whom you serve, impacts made on people, programs, communities, and you.
A few suggestions: Story of a day that stands out; Story of a person you met; Story of your own growth; An epiphany; A story that gives the reader new perspectives; An event that inspired you toward service. To see 2010-2011 Stories go to: http://www.servewisconsin.wi.gov/category.asp?linkcatid=2885&linkid=1489&locid=162
