Why Community Service?
 
You do not need community service hours to graduate, but it is highly recommended for college applications, scholarships, and resumes.  Community service hours help you stand out.  Community service is recognized at graduation by the wearing of cords.  For 50 to 99 hours, you will receive one cord; for 100 hours or more, you will receive 2 cords.
 
Hours can be counted after the first day of school freshmen year, all the way to the end of the 3rd 9-weeks of your senior year.  Seniors must enter hours by March 20, 2018 to count towards graduation records.
 
Things to Know About Community Service
 
Hours can be entered anytime, but the deadline for entry is the end of the 3rd 9-weeks Senior Year.  Students are encouraged to stay on top of their hours so they will be verified in a timely manner.
 
  1. Hours must be completed after the first day of 9th grade.  Any hours completed before the first day of 9th grade do NOT count towards cords and should not be entered on college applications.
  2. If you have questions about whether a certain event/activity counts as community service, please email dherzog@magnoliaisd.org.
  3. Hours will show pending until approval is made.
Guidelines
Volunteer hours may be earned in both the school and community, as long as the student is donating their time and not benefiting from the service or receiving payment.  Please read below to see a more detailed description of community service.
 
  • Services for an organization that a student belongs to will not be counted.  For example, participation in a car wash sponsored by a club would not count as community service.  An exception to this guideline would be if the organization is donating the profits to a charity.
 
  • A student may earn volunteer hours by helping at an event or performance at which admission is charged or a donation is collected, providing that the student is not a member of the organization benefiting from the event.  For example, a student who is not a member of the Drama Club may volunteer to usher and collect tickets at a drama club production and earn service hours.
 
  • Students may receive volunteer hours for helping at religious institutions as long as those hours do not include participation in a religious service. For example, a student is not eligible for hours spent teaching Sunday school, singing in the choir or serving as an altar server.  However, a student may receive service hours for assisting with landscaping, office work, clean-up days, or volunteering in the daycare center.
 
  • Service for a student's family or family business will not count.  Volunteer hours may not be certified by a family member or fellow student.
 
  • Babysitting or similar services, performed for an individual family will not count.  Babysitting services for school or in a church nursery or related situation will count.
 
  • Club meetings do not count as community service.
 
  • Service hours will not be awarded for any in-kind or monetary donations including canned food collections, toy collections, etc.  For example, a service hour value cannot be established for the donation of a specific number of cans of food.  The time spent collecting the cans of food can be counted.
 
  • Hours cannot be doubled and must represent actual time donated.
