As part of Castle Rock School District’s objective of “Inspiring pride and achievement for all through relevant learning and great expectations!”

The Castle Rock school board is reinstating community service as a graduation requirement that were suspended during restrictions due to the pandemic. The following adjustments will be made per class as to the total hours needed for graduation, and when they should be acquired.

Castle Rock Community Service required hours:

  • Class of 2024: 8 hours Senior year (have a total of 14 to meet graduation requirement)
  • Class of 2025: 6 hours this year
  • Class of 2026: 4 hours this year
  • Class of 2027: 2 hours this year

**Graduation requirement is 20 hours unless otherwise noted.

If a student is doing community service hours that are not promoted through the Career Center, those hours must be pre-approved by the advisor, Mrs. Moore or administration, for those hours to be guaranteed.

Students may accrue more hours than are mandated, but must still achieve their hours requirement per grade level. For example: Going into Junior year, the student has volunteered and has 21 hours logged, they still will be required to earn 6 hours during the year.
