Community Service Requirements

Community Service Guidelines

Although it is not a requirement to graduate, community service hours are required for the Bright Futures Scholarship and are a positive addition to college applications. Updated state and district guidelines and criteria for students to complete community service hours are posted below. Students must complete a comprehensive community service plan which addresses a social problem or concern, and submit the plan to their guidance counselor for approval prior to implementation. Please see the link below for additional information, forms, and suggested projects.


Guidelines for students:

1. Obtain the required forms from the school website or your guidance counselor
2. Develop a written community service plan 
which addresses a social problem or concern.
3. Submit the plan to your counselor for approval 
before you begin your community service.
4. All community service will begin the summer prior to entering high school. Community service prior to grade 9 will not be counted.
5. Submit community service documentation to your counselor upon completion of the approved activity.
