!!!BREAKING NEWS!!!★

 

In recognition of the fact that COVID has had an enormous impact on students’ ability to earn community service hours, and the fact that no one anticipated COVID and therefore it was not possible to plan in advance for the reduced community service opportunities now available, we are reducing Oceana’s community service requirement for currently enrolled students as follows:

Until we are in our second consecutive school year with normal community service opportunities**:
Students will be expected to complete:
• 8 hours for each pre-COVID year at OHS (4 per semester)
• 8 hours for each year affected by COVID (4 per semester)

Once we begin our second consecutive school year with normal community service opportunities**:
Students will be expected to complete:
• 8 hours for each pre-COVID year at OHS (4 per semester)
• 8 hours for each year affected by COVID (4 per semester)
• and 25 hours for each year with normal CS opportunities. (12.5 per semester)

**(Normal CS opportunities defined as starting the school year with at least 10 ongoing opportunities)


How this would play out for students currently enrolled in OHS:
Class of 2021 and 2022: 8+8+8+8 = 32 hours required
If 2021-2022 has normal community service opportunities, then starting in 2022-2023, 25 per year would be required:
• Class of 2023: 8+8+8+25 = 49 hours
• Class of 2024: 8+8+25+25 = 66 hours
• Class of 2025 in this scenario would have an entire HS experience unaffected by COVID, and therefore would revert to 100 hour requirement.

Silver cords:
For any year where the total number of required hours ≤ 50, silver cords will be awarded for 500% of the total hours:
• Total required hours = 32 → silver cord = 160 hours
• Total required hours = 49 → silver cord = 245 hours
For any year where total number of required hours > 50 hours, silver cords will be awarded for 250 hours, (pro-rated if student was not at Oceana for all 4 years)
