Community Service Requirements

  • Service Learning (Community Service) is a graduation requirement for all Iroquois students.

    "Service learning is defined as a teaching/learning method that connects meaningful community service with academic learning, personal growth and civic responsibility. It is a means of fostering an academic environment that encourages students to examine moral and ethical issues facing a diverse citizenry in an increasingly independent world. Through service learning, students will obtain the knowledge, skills and values of responsible citizenship."

    All students must complete a minimum of 32 hours to meet graduation requirements. It is recommended that students complete a minimum of 8 hours of service per year. You may contact your school counselor or Mrs. Zagst, to verify the number of hours that you currently have logged. (Addendum added November 2012).

    There are numerous volunteer opportunities available to students.  See below for more information!
