“BSD students must earn (40) hours of Community Service as one of their graduation requirements. Students may begin to earn these hours once they complete their eighth (8th) grade year. The hours may be earned all at one time, or in a manner that meets the student’s schedule, during his/her high school years, but must be completed prior to the student’s participation in a commencement ceremony and the granting of a diploma.
Community Service is any service that is done for non-profit agencies and organization and/or religious organizations. School service is also included. For activities that occur over more than one day, a maximum of 10 hours/day is allowed for the 40 hours of community service required for graduation. All students will record their community service hours in x2VOL.”
For more details on this and other graduation requirements, go to the BSD Course Catalog.
How to Log Community Service Hours:

Verification of Hours:
- It is the student’s responsibility to ensure submitted hours are verified.
- Hours must be verified by the non-profit organization before they can be approved to count towards the 40-hour BSD graduation requirement.
