Community Service

Welcome to the Dover Middle/High School Community Service Web Page.

Remember, to graduate students need 90 hours of Community Service (or 15 hours per year starting in the 7th grade). If you entered Dover MS or Dover HS after the 7th grade, your "hours needed" will be adjusted accordingly. 6th Grade students are not required to complete community service; however, if a 6th grade student does community service, these hours may be handed in and held until 7th grade where they will be counted toward graduation.

Each student shall be required to earn one-half credit for community service as a part of his/her total credit requirement to satisfy all requirements for graduation. One-half shall equal ninety (90) clock hours.
