Community service is an essential element in the IDEA education. All scholars must complete 100 hours of community service in order to graduate, which strengthens character, promotes empathy, builds leadership skills, and instills the value of serving others.
Community service events scheduled for this fall include
September 14 | Ward 7 Day/Art All Night @ IDEA
September 21 | Science Lab Clean Up @ IDEA
October 19 | Martha's Table (tentative)
For help finding other community service activities, please see your advisory teacher, CTE Director Andrea Zimmerman
, Dean of Culture Lori Briscoe
, or Academic Counselor Sara Sharpe
To verify community service hours, scholars must submit this form
to someone from the organization with which they're volunteering. Scholars are responsible for submitting completed forms to Dean Briscoe or Ms. Sharpe.
Please refer to IDEA's graduation requirements
