Ridgefield School Board announces new community service recognition for graduates


RIDGEFIELD —The Ridgefield School District and the Ridgefield Schools Board of Directors are starting a program to recognize graduates who show a commitment to community service.

Beginning with the class of 2022, graduates who complete a minimum number of community service hours will receive a diploma with a special “Community Service” seal to recognize those students who voluntarily donate time to worthwhile efforts in the community.

To qualify, students must complete at least 36 hours of community service for each year of high school.

While it is impossible to list all examples of qualifying types of service, it is generally understood that community service recognition is for participation in the community for the express purpose of helping others.
