Community Service

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT COMMUNITY SERVICE:  

Spaulding High School has a deep commitment to community service . Given everything we are currently experiencing in this region, State, Nation, and the World as a whole, there are community service activities that can still be accomplished to give back to people in need. 

However, we want to maintain that all of our Spaulding High School community is safe and well during these challenging times, and not put anyone at undue risk, so Spaulding High School's Administration have advocated for,  and the School Board has decided to, waive the Community Service graduation requirement for the class of 2021. We will resume the graduation requirement next year.      

We encourage students who are providing any service to continue to document your hours with this  Community Service Form.  For now, simply save it in a folder in your google documents.  

 

Spaulding High School's Community Service requirement challenges students to expand their definition of “community” to involve a larger portion of their world than just their school or their family. Additionally, it helps students realize that their contribution can make a difference, while also fostering a habit of service. Through Community Service, students also have the opportunity to pursue their interests, meet potential mentors, and develop skills and contacts that will help them well into the future. Students will be informed of both school and community related opportunities as the year progresses. 

If you have questions about any activity, please reach out to Margo Austin prior to starting that activity at maustshs@buusd.org

Community Service Overview

As of the 2020-21 school year, our students are required to complete a minimum of number of hours of community service, as follows:

  • Current 12th Grade (class of 2021) -No community service requirement 
  • Current 11th Grade (class of 2022) -   20 hours
  • Current 10th Grade (class of 2023) - 30 hours
  • Current 9th Grade (class of 2024) - 40 hours

We encourage students to work towards their Community Service requirements during the summer or over vacations and holidays. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD. The entire requirement could be completed in a condensed period of time or over multiple dates.  For instance, students going on a service trip or volunteering for an organized event, like a cancer walk, might fulfill most of their annual hours during the same trip or event.

To learn more see the Community Service Handbook.
