STEPS TO EARNING COMMUNITY SERVICE:

2) Call the social agency and make arrangements.
3) Complete the service verification form and have a person from the agency sign it and provide a phone number.
4) Bring the completed verification form to your High School Office.

All community service hours must be completed on or before April 30th. Students will be suspended for one day if community service requirements are not met by April 30th. The suspension date will be specified by the Administration.

Work which qualifies also includes: Salvation Army, Park and Recreation Department, Junior Red Cross (hospital), Soup Kitchens/Rescue Missions, Columbia and Richmond County Humane Society, Summer mission trips and Vacation Bible School.

A maximum of 2 hours can be earned through preparing a box for operation Christmas Child, providing supplies through a drive at school for Golden Harvest or Lydia Project, and providing casseroles to the Ronald McDonald House. This excludes the number of hours of service a student could earn by volunteering at the Golden Harvest Food Bank, Operation Christmas Child Headquarters, and/or the Ronald McDonald House.

Community service requires the student going outside of their usual daily contacts to help a social agency. Therefore, work that does not qualify includes any church ministry (aside from Vacation Bible School and missions), work for an individual (parent, coach, teacher, neighbor, etc.), work for any relative (at home or work) and work for any business (example: bank, restaurant, grocery store, etc.) not considered a social service agency.

Work which qualifies also includes: Salvation Army, Park and Recreation Department, Junior Red Cross (hospital), Soup Kitchens/Rescue Missions, Columbia and Richmond County Humane Society, Summer mission trips and Vacation Bible School.
