Community Service Graduation Requirement

The Lincoln Public Schools has established a 20-hour Community Service requirement for graduation to meet the mission statement for Civics and Government:

Students will demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for living in a democracy and becoming a contributing member of society.

Students usually complete the 20 hours of service required for graduation before or during the semester in which they are registered for Government and Politics class. Some students work on the requirement during the summer prior to the senior year. Credit for Community Service must be earned outside of the school day and unrelated to a school program. Students must check with their Government and Politics teacher or high school Social Studies Department Chair for approval for activities with any agency not listed as an approved location.
