Community Service Definition

Community Service Definition:

Community Service is a non-remunerated activity (student cannot receive payment, credit, reward or other compensation for services

rendered) whereby a student provides a needed service that directly benefits our community or an organization within it.

Community Service performed at school must take place during non-instructional hours. 

Community Service Requirement

 

Completion of Community Service Hours is not a requirement of the Senior Portfolio or graduation; however, it is worth ten points of your final Senior Portfolio grade.  Also, students who meet the Community Service Requirement for their 10th, 11th, and 12th grade will be recognized with a Community Service Cord to be worn at graduation. 

It is important to have your Community Service Hours approved by your Advocacy teacher prior to completion to make certain that your chosen activity meets the established criteria. If your activity does not meet the Community Service criteria, and you completed the hours without prior approval, the hours will not count. 

Additionally, if you meet all of your Community Service Requirements, you will receive 10 points (full credit) on the 100 point Senior Portfolio grade. If you complete 2 of the 3 years, you will receive 6 points, and if you only complete 1 of the 3 years, you will still earn 3 out of 10 points on your final Portfolio grade.
