    How long to you have to complete the 90 hours, and what the
    requirements - i.e. one big ongoing project, or an hour here
    and an hour there, or (most likely) something in between? For
    the program I did several years ago, we had to do a series of
    20-hour projects.

    Anyway, ideas which may or may not fit your needs... filling
    in when an admin is out, as has been mentioned... lead a
    committee or after-school program or other project... take the
    lead in a change your school is undergoing... be a testing
    coordinator... take a leadership role in writing/revising a
    school plan such as budget, emergency preparedness, parent
    involvement, etc... after-school sports supervision at the
    high school if that's feasible (perhaps not since you
    mentioned elementary/middle school, but it's good way to
    accumulate lots of hours outside the school day!)... conduct a
    needs assessment survey (staff, students, and/or parents) and
    analyze the results to identify needs and formulate a way to
    address them... etc.
