Community Service Home

Through community service, students are given opportunities to become responsible citizens by helping others while learning selflessness and fostering personal growth. Every student attending a Douglas County School is required to fulfill a 20-hour community service requirement outside of their home and family environment in order to graduate. To be counted toward the graduation requirement, this service must commence after the successful completion of eighth grade.  All hours must be documented on a DCSD Community Service Form along with the Student Reflection to be processed.  Any activity that meets the DCSD Guidelines will be accepted. All hours documented will be noted on the student’s transcript.

Community Service hours are now available to view through your Parent Portal Account.  Under the Index Column in the Portal, please click on the Assessment Link.
