Suffolk Public Schools is committed to preparing our students with the skills they will need to adapt to a rapidly changing world. New local and state graduation requirements will be implemented for rising ninth grade students, beginning September 2013 and beyond.  The new requirements will contribute to and enhance our students’ ability to accomplish their educational, personal, and career goals.

Community Service
The community service requirement is designed to promote civic responsibility through active participation in service experiences, to enhance the students’ ability and desire to impact the community, to foster a sense of caring for others, and to develop a habit of volunteer service to those in need as a part of the College and Career Readiness initiative. Students must earn 50 hours of community service before graduation.
