Community Service Learning - Deadlines

VolunteerAll students are required to do 40 hours of community service over the course of their high school career in order to graduate. If a student has transferred from another school district, then they must complete 10 hours of community service for every year they have been in the Fremont Unified School District. Students, make sure that the hours you complete are acceptable by review the FUSD Board Policy on Service Learning Hours. 

Contact: Ms. Mitchell at, for questions. 

2022-2023 Update: 

Hours from summer 2022 will be collected at the start of the 2022-2023 school year. Please keep forms in a safe place and remember to make a copy of completed forms for your records.

  • Maintenance or administrative tasks will not be accepted
    • An example a task that would not be accepted is filing paperwork or trimming bushes
  • Service learning must take place outside of school hours
