Volunteer Requirements

  • Each Kindergarten – 8th Grade family is required to complete 10 hours of service each school year.
  • Single parent families are required to complete 5 hours of service each school year.
  • Families who choose not to complete the required service hours will be charged a $25 per hour
    not completed. Payment for unserved hours will be collected through Facts “Incidental Billing.”
  • Grandparents who are approved volunteers may complete service hours on behalf of a family.
  • Volunteer hours must be submitted online via FACTS within one month of service in order to be
    credited for them. Sign into FACTS > Click Family > Click Family Home > Click the plus sign
    in the upper right hand corner of the Service Hours section.
  • Every $25 spent in donation of items purchased will equal one volunteer hour.
