Community Service -- How it works

  • Community Service Banner

    Are you a Washoe County School District high school student? Do you participate in or have interest in participating in a community service activity? If so, you may be eligible to earn elective credit through Community Service!

    Students may earn a 1/2 (.50) credit by providing evidence of 60 hours of community service, including a report addressing the benefit of their experiences. Community Service is offered on a semester basis and payment in the amount of $50 is required per 1/2 (.50) credit (payment/registration must be completed before hours count.)

    The requirements of the course are listed below:

     1.  The following forms must be completed and submitted to Extended Studies three weeks prior to the proposed experience:
      • Students must complete and submit the Description of Intended Community Service and Organization Agreement forms to Extended Studies at least three weeks prior to the proposed experience.


      • Students can only earn .5 credit per semester. Hours served to religious organizations, teams, the student’s family business, or private business, are not eligible for Community Service credit.  Students are not eligible for Community Service credit if they are supervised by a parent or close relative.


    2.  The following must be completed at time of registration and prior to the student counting participation hours.

      • After receiving notification that the proposed Community Service activity is approved by Extended Studies, parents must complete a registration form and pay $50.00 for the course. Checks are made payable to WCSD.
      • The Statement of Understanding must be signed by the parent and student then original submitted to Extended Studies.

        The Community Service Time Log documenting the hours of service must be submitted monthly, no later than 7 days after the end of the month to Extended Studies with the exception of the final month. The final month’s completed time log must be submitted two (2) weeks before the end of the semester to Extended Studies.
