  • Status of Community Service Opportunities & the Requirement

    The Shoreline School Board rescinded the graduation requirement for 40 hours of community service for the Classes of 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. 

    We expect the District to review the requirement for other classes and will keep you informed of any adjustments. At minimum, we expect that the hour total will be reduced according to the closures. It is unlikely that the service requirement for the Classes of 2022, 2023, and 2024 will be the full 40 hours. 

    If students have time and feel safe, we encourage you to find opportunities to gain experience and be engaged with your community. 

    For details on the requirement and policies of what does and does not count, see the Community Service Requirement page.

    Please note that summer service hours do NOT count for incoming 9th graders, but they do count for already-enrolled students entering grades 10-12. 9th graders may start accruing hours when the school year starts.  


    General Community Service Instructions

    1. Identify an event that will work for you. 
    2. Sign up via the email address or link in the entry.
    3. Download a community service form from this page.
    4. Fill the form out completely & have your supervisor sign it. If it is difficult to get an actual signature, attach a screenshot of an email from the supervisor or a log of your hours from the nonprofit agency, or some other evidence showing verification. 
    5. Turn the form in promptly after your service via your Class of 202x course in Canvas. IMPORTANT:  please add a comment on your upload with:  number of hours, agency served with, date of service. It might be 3 hours YMCA  6/19/21 or 11 hours Shoreline Farmers' Market 6/10-7/12/21.  

    Please do not email your forms or turn them in on paper; they will not be logged.

    While we have established relationships with most of these community organizations, feel free to ask questions about the situations, and do not do anything you are not comfortable with.

    Look Up Your Hours

    To see your hour total, go to your Canvas Class of 202x course, and look in Assignments for Community Service Form Upload. Your point total is your # of hours. We no longer keep records of hours in Skyward.
