The Salinas Union High School District has a graduation requirement of 60 hours of community service. In order for students to be on track for completing the Community Service Graduation requirement, students should begin their community service during their Freshman year. Each year a minimum of 15 hours should be completed and turned into the Career Center for documentation.
To earn credit, an activity :
- Must be pre-approved by the Community Service Coordinator
- Cannot be done during the school day
- Must be for or through a non-profit organization
- Must be recorded on the appropriate Community Service Contract Form
Please note that students must complete their community service hours in at least two different categories. Only 20 hours may count towards the School Related category and only 10 hours may count towards a Job Shadow.
Students may turn in their community service contracts at the Community Service Corner located inside the Main office. We highly recommend students make a copy or take a picture of contracts being turned in for their records.
