Mustangs face new community service requirements

Ally Ellis – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – This school year Manatee County changed high school community service guidelines. LRHS has developed a new form compatible with the new rules.

Starting this year, in order to get full credit, students need to have a parent signature, have projects approved by administration in advance, and include a brief summary and rationale for the project. These changes document how much effort and time was put in.

Last year’s community service form did not require a parent’s signature. Manatee County also now requires a summary. Officials wanted students to show that the service project was meaningful and wasn’t just done just to get the hours.

Volunteer forms are available in the guidance office.
