Community Service/Service Learning

As part of each student's requirements for graduation, five hours of community service must be performed for each year or partial year of attendance at Prairie View High School for a total of 20 hours. Students are encouraged to use this service opportunity to explore potential career interests.  If you have any question about what will count for community service, it is best to check with you counselor before completing hours.  Hours that do not meet the following requirements will not count.

  • Community service work cannot take place during the regular school day. 
  • Students may not receive pay or academic credit for community service.
  • Court-ordered or disciplinary service may not count for community service.
  • Community service must be completed with a non-profit or governmental agency (not a for-profit business) that is providing a service directly to the community.
