  • Hour Republic - entering your Community Involvement Hours over the summer...

    by Irene Siemiaszko | Jun 29, 2018
    REMEMBER - you must log in under the DSBN site. 

    If you google "Hour Republic" and use that link, you will be on their public site and we will never ever see your hours!  Plus you will be asked to make, or to insert, a password.  

    The DSBN Hour Republic site does not require a password other than your regular school student password to get onto your DSBN platform.

    HINT:  Let your volunteer organization know when you've submitted your hours so that they will know to look for the verification email and not delete it!
