In Delaware, high school students in grades 9–12 can earn one elective credit toward graduation upon completing 90 hours of community service over any 2 semesters. The summer period counts as a semester and the semesters do not have to be consecutive. Upon completion of the 90 hours, students receive a certificate signed by the Governor and the Secretary of the Delaware Department of Education.
The credit is awarded by the participating school and is prominently displayed on the student’s transcript. An explanation of the credit, prepared by the Delaware Department of Education, accompanies any request for the student’s transcript.
The credit and certificate are awarded annually in May and the deadline for submission of verification forms by the school to the State Office of Volunteerism is April 15.
