Community Service

Community Service Requirement

All CHS students are required to complete 20 hours of community service as stated in Board Policy 5122 as a graduation requirement.  Community service forms can be printed from this website (link below) or picked up in the Registrar’s Office.  When hours are completed, return the form to the Registrar’s Office with an attached business card, or a letter from the service organization on their letterhead.  Your hours will then be recorded.

Community service can be completed by working without pay for a non-profit organization that benefits your fellow man, the environment, or the animal kingdom. If you are paid for a service, it is not considered community service.  Fundraising for a team is also not considered community service.

Please see the CHS Community Service Board located in the Guidance Office across from the Registrar’s Office for current opportunity listings.
