The school I work for has a community service requirement for graduation and I was wondering if it was possible to record and track each student's community service hours through PowerSchool? Something for students, teachers, and parents to be able to track the student's service record with the current service hours and descriptions of each service.
Jason Springel the host of PowerSchool Insider videocast has created a customization to track community service hours. Your technical contact person can download it and install it on your server.

Episode 5 from December 2016.
I recommend reaching out to the Designated Support Contact within your school or district who should be able to review and install the customization.
Our school tracks community service as well. Since our service requirements vary by grade level. We created a class called "Service Learning" for each grade level and dropped the students into that. The service learning director makes the service opportunities available to the class. Students then submit a reflection after they have completed the service work.
I'm glad you asked the question. I'll see if I can get to the 2016 Insider Editions to see about the customization that was created then.
