Community Involvement Hours Update

2020-21 Graduates

For students graduating in the 2020-21 school year, the requirement has been adjusted to a minimum of 20 hours.

All Students in the 2020-21 School Year

More flexible options are available for community involvement hours.  At the principal’s discretion:

  1. Students may be allowed to earn hours during the time allotted for the school day, or duties normally performed in the home. Examples include walking a younger child to and from school, helping younger siblings with schoolwork.
  2. Students aged 14 or older can count a maximum of 10 hours from paid employment.  Students counting paid employment will be required to complete a reflection exercise indicating how their work contributed to the service for others.

Please contact your school guidance office for more details.
