All seniors at Cuba High School must do a community service project as a graduation requirement. The following information outlines some basic rules all seniors must follow for this project:
Each senior must have a mentor (can not be a relative or an employee of Cuba schools) to verify work.
Project work can not begin before January 1.
Simply volunteering for an organization = 30 hours of work. Developing a physical project (i.e. building something to donate, organizing an event, etc.) = 15 hours of work
If a senior plans on fundraising, a member of the organization must be present to handle the money raised.
The project does not have to cost anything.
Seniors who have not taken Composition for college credit must write an 8-10 page research paper that is somehow connected to their projects. This is done 1st semester.
Any project that does not have a community service portion will receive no higher than a B- for a final grade.
All seniors must present their projects before a panel of judges consisting of a teacher and community members.
