Silver Cord Hours

Central Decatur encourages students to give back to their community through volunteering.  

Those students who have completed 50 hours of community service each of their freshman, sophomore, junior and senior years will receive and wear Silver Cords at their graduation ceremony. 

These community service hours must be done without any compensation. The hours must be done for someone other than an immediate family member or relative.

Community service hours that a student is required by law to complete cannot count towards the annual 50 hours. 

Students are responsible for setting up volunteer hours and completing and submitting the necessary paperwork to verify volunteer hours
