How many hours do I need to graduate?
For the 2021-2022 school year, graduating students are only required to complete 20 hours of community service. For all other grades, the requirement of 40 hours is still in place. Students can start accumulating their hours in the summer following their grade 8 year.
The rules around how they can be accumulated have also been modified, due to COVID restrictions.
