Who requires High School Seniors in National Issues (a New York State required class) do 10 hours of community service and a town hall meeting in order to pass that class and graduate? Is it New York State or Shen?

A.  Attending a community meeting and completing 10 hours of volunteer service is a requirement of the Shenendehowa National Issues Forum course which meets the New York State graduation requirement for Participation in Government. At Shenendehowa, our Social Studies Department takes the responsibility of preparing our students to fulfill their social and political responsibilities as citizens in a democratic society very seriously. Students learn a tremendous amount from both attending the meetings and doing volunteer service.
