All students receiving a diploma from a Lee’s Summit high school must complete 10 hours of approved community service.
Those minimum, approved hours should be submitted to the high school’s community service coordinator to remain a part of the student’s permanent file. Students are asked to complete the service requirement by the end of the junior year. New students to the district who enroll the second semester of their senior year must complete five hours of service.
Students participating in the A+ program may use their tutoring/ mentoring hours to fulfill their graduation service requirement. It is, however, the students’ responsibility to show proof of time spent. All final paperwork must be submitted in person to the community service coordinator for approval and a signed receipt copy.
