Central Valley High School believes that giving back to the community is very important and wants all students to learn these skills in service learning.
All graduates of Central Valley High School are required to serve five hours of community service each year. This is a graduation requirement and mandatory to pass Advisory Class. Seniors in the Senior Seminar class are required to serve 10 hours of community service as a part of his/her class.
Students need to complete a Community Service form and have it signed by the organization he/she is working for. This form is turned in to his/her Advisory teacher (seniors turn his/her form in to his/her Senior Seminar teacher.) If it is not turned in by the end of the school year, students will receive an unsatisfactory grade in Advisory and will be assigned an additional two hours of community service. Once this service is completed, the student's grade will be changed to satisfactory (if this was the only reason he/she had an unsatisfactory grade.) Seniors will not receive their diploma until all Advisory grades are satisfactory for their tenure at CVHS.
Community service opportunities are given to students all year long over the daily announcements and in Advisory class. Some examples of community service are: Food Bank help, helping at church, shoveling an elderly person's driveway (as long as it is not family), Adopt-a-Family Advisory projects at Christmas, CV Carnival, etc.
