 Please Note:

  • Only hours accumulated in high school will be accepted. 
  • Students cannot receive academic credit, salary, or any other money for services rendered. 
  • Students may not receive community service hours for athletic games or practice (including serving as a team manager), rehearsals, competitions, or performances in school related events.
  • There is no doubling of hours. 
  • There is a fee of $10 for the Community Service Cord, which must be paid on MyPaymentsPlus. . 


All Magnet Students are required to complete 265 hours of community service in order to receive their magnet seal.


*The amount of community service hours has been decreased only for the graduating classes of 2023, 2024, 2025, and 2026 due to the impact of COVID-19 Pandemic.
