NOTE: The community involvement graduation requirement has been
reduced from 40 hours to a minimum of 20 hours of community involvement
activities for students graduating in the 2021-22 school year. Temporary
changes to reduce barriers students may face to earn their community
involvement hours and provide greater flexibility in how they earn their
hours, will continue for the 2021-22 school year.
Every student is required to complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to receive his/her diploma. Students are now able to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter Grade 9!
The purpose is to encourage students to develop an understanding of the various roles they can play in their community and to help them develop a greater sense of belonging
Some students may wish to complete more than 40 hours. Contact Student Services for more information about eligible activities and the process of recording your community involvement hours.
Annual School/Community Events:
At EDHS, our students participate in a variety of annual community events that not only contribute to the strength of our community ties but help us to demonstrate the good character and talents of our students.
