Community Involvement Hours for Students in the 2020-2021 School Year 

 

Given Ontario’s current State of Emergency, it’s important for both graduating students and parents/guardians to understand the Ministry of Educations expectations for the completion of community hours. For students graduating by June 2021, the required number of hours for graduation has been reduced to a minimum of 20 hours of community involvement activities. 

If approved, students may count any of the following activities towards their community involvement hours (parent signature for at home activities is sufficient):  

  • up to 10 hours of paid employment if a student is 14 years or older and completes a reflection exercise demonstrating how their work contributed to their community, (record the hours on the official form ... USE THIS FORM THE COMPLETE THE REFLECTION PARAGRAPH.
  • community involvement during school time, for example, walking a younger sibling to and from school or helping younger siblings with school work, 

  • duties normally performed at home, for example, helping an elderly relative with errands or providing after school care for a sibling. 

Please remember that in completing community involvement hours, student safety is of the utmost concern.  Students must respect all provincial and municipal health guidelines, including the current “Stay at Home” order issued by the province.  

Additional information about this graduation requirement, and others, can be found at: www.ontario.ca/page/high-school-graduation-requirements#section-4.
