Nevada, MO 64772

Dear AFJROTC Cadet;

     Welcome to the Air Force Junior ROTC and the "Flying Tigers" of Nevada High School.  You have chosen a program that offers special opportunities in Education, Leadership, Social Activities and Community Service.  We are sure you will profit from your time in the program. 

     The AFJROTC stresses personal responsibility.  As a cadet, you will join a select group of students who were recognized as the best of the best by the Air Force for six years in a row.  Our cadet corps is justifiably proud of its accomplishments.  One of your responsibilities in this top unit is to wear the Air Force uniform one day each week.  Our cadets also take pride in meeting the Air Force standards for personal appearance.  These standards support the leadership and personal development objective of JROTC and if taken in the spirit in which they are intended will provide the foundation for a pleasant and profitable educational experience.

     As instructors, we are dedicated to helping you get the most out of the program.  Additionally, your peer cadets will be a valuable group of associates in the program and in the high school.  For your part, we urge you to GET INVOLVED.  Your enthusiasm and interest are the heart of the AFJROTC program here at Nevada.  The more you put into the program, the more you will enjoy and the more you will get out of it.  Think seriously right now about joining the cadet color guard and drill teams.

     This Cadet Guide will help you in becoming a better cadet.  It provides many details about the proper wear and fit of the uniform, placement of insignia and rank, classroom and campus conduct, etc.  Your achievements in the program, learning about aerospace, development as a leader, the ranks you attain and your contributions to the reputation of the Air Force Junior ROTC Unit here depend greatly upon your attitude and the way you successfully use the information in this guide.

     The motto of Missouri's 71st (MO-071) Air Force Junior ROTC "Flying Tigers" Squadron is "Leadership by Example."  We hope this motto will be a guide and challenge for you in all of your school activities.

     We are glad you are in the AFJROTC.  Please take time to show this guide to your parents/guardians so they will understand the program and assist you in meeting its objectives.  GOOD LUCK and Welcome Aboard.

CHAPTER 2

 

AEROSPACE SCIENCE CURRICULUM

 

     Cadets enrolling in the Aerospace Science Curriculum will have the opportunity to take several different courses with each course covering a single school year.  These courses are listed as Aerospace Science (AS) in the Nevada High School Catalog of Classes.  Each course is divided into leadership and aerospace studies.

 

AEROSPACE SCIENCE - Health/Physical Education

 

     Health/Physical Education is a first or second year course that covers physical education, health and leadership.  Students will learn the basics of physical education through various activities.  In health students will be exposed to factual information relevant to personal health and hygiene. The leadership part of the course stresses followership and leadership fundamentals, customs and courtesies of the armed forces, drill and ceremonies, organization and management and communication and problem solving techniques.  Practical activities in these subjects help promote individual self-reliance, discipline, responsibility and one-half unit of physical education and one-half unit of health.

 

AEROSPACE SCIENCE – Science of Flight

 

     The Science of Flight is a general study of aeronautics and the principles of flight.  Specific subject areas are the aerospace environment, human requirements of flight, and principles of flight and navigation.  In leadership, the course covers communication skills, introduces leadership theory and individual/group behavior, and allows the cadet to apply these skills during drill.

 

AEROSPACE SCIENCE – Science of Space

 

     In the Science of Space, cadets study the history and current uses of aerospace systems in space exploration and operations.  Subjects include the history of space

flight, rocket propulsion, human requirements for space flight and current space

missions.  The leadership area of the course teaches application of leadership, management and communication skills while allowing the cadet to practice

individual leadership and followership techniques.  Cadets in ASIII often are also

part of the cadet staff and elect to participate in the Summer Leadership School

held each year during June.

 

AEROSPACE SCIENCE – Introduction to Astronomy

An Introduction to Astronomy explores the history or astronomy to include prehistoric astronomy, the early ideas of the heavens.  The size and shape of the earth are discussed as well as the distance and size of the Sun and Moon.  Other topics such as astronomy in the renaissance and Isaac Newton and the Birth of Astrophysics and the growth of astrophysics are discussed.  We take focus on the Earth as a planet and the Earth’s interior; the age of the Earth and Earth’s magnetic atmosphere and magnetic field.  The Moon is discussed in detail including its description, its structure, and its origin and history, as well as its eclipses and tides.  An in-depth study of the Solar System, the terrestrial planets and the outer planets is covered as well.

 

AEROSPACE SCIENCE - Journey into Aviation History

The Journey into Aviation History focuses on the development of flight throughout the centuries.  It starts with ancient civilizations, then progresses through time to modern day.  The emphasis is on civilian and military contributions to aviation; the development, modernization, and transformation of the Air Force; and a brief astronomical and space exploration history.  It is interspersed with concise overviews of the principles of flight to include basic aeronautics, aircraft motion and control, flight power, and rockets.  Throughout the course, there are readings, videos, hands-on activities, and in-text and student workbook exercises to guide in the reinforcement of the materials. 

AEROSPACE SCIENCE – Cadet Staff

     Aerospace Science IV stresses the challenge of command and staff positions and individual planning and management.  At Nevada High School, there are three options for cadets who wish to enroll in the ASIV course.

 Cadet Staff

     The cadet staff runs all aspects of the Cadet Corps.  This allows the cadets to integrate and apply all aspects of the leadership and management curriculum as they plan and carry out activities for the corps throughout the school year.  The responsibilities include commander, operations, information management, personnel, awards and decorations, finance, public affairs, and logistics.  Duties in these areas are rotated during the school year to give cadets the opportunity to plan, organize, coordinate, direct, and control different command and staff functions.  Cadets also receive academic instruction on aerospace careers and U.S. defense policy. For enrollment into the Cadet Staff class cadets must have successfully completed two Aerospace courses and have instructor approval.

 DRILL AND CEREMONIES

      Drill and Ceremonies is designed to give those cadets interested in competing in drill the opportunity to apply their leadership skills in advanced drill.  Members of this course generally are also members of the Cadet Drill Team and Cadet Color Guard.  Cadet’s plan and practice drill maneuvers and aid in planning honor guard and color guard events such as performance in local parades and performing military rites at funerals for deceased veterans. 

 

AVIATION FUNDAMENTALS

      Aviation Fundamentals gives the students the opportunity to study and pass the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) written examination for Private Pilot Ground School.  Currently, the course is also one of the honors courses presented at the high school.  The content of the course teaches advanced weather studies, human requirements of flight, flight planning, use of navigation aids and other areas necessary for successfully completing the FAA examination.  The course is a demanding, fast-paced preparatory step to becoming a private pilot.  

WELLNESS CURRICULUM

Wellness is an official part of the Air Force Junior ROTC program.  It is an exercise program focused upon individual base line improvements with the goal of achieving a national standard as calculated with age and gender.  Wellness is instrumental in developing citizens of character dedicated to serving our nation and communities.  The program is provided as a tool to help you develop individualized training programs for your cadets.  All Cadets enrolled in AFJROTC will be given the opportunity to put into practice the wellness concepts that are taught in Leadership Education I and Health. Thursdays is the unit’s physical training day, known as the Extreme Excellence Challenge,   and cadets will engage in physical activities as delineated in the Aerospace Syllabus.   Ribbons are awarded for cadets who participate in the program.  Standards for this program are at Appendix I.


CHAPTER 3

ADMISSION, TRANSFER AND DISENROLLMENT OF STUDENTS

1.  ELIGIBILITY:  To be eligible for membership and continuing participation in the AFJROTC program, each cadet must be:

 

a. Enrolled in, and attending a regular course of instruction.

b. A male or female citizen of the United States

c. At least 14 years of age upon completion of AS 1.

d. Of good moral character.

e. Physically fit.  A cadet is considered physically fit if he/she is qualified for the physical education program of Nevada High School.

2.  STUDENTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES:  A citizen of a foreign country recognized by the United States may be admitted as a "special student" at the discretion of the Principal and the Senior JROTC Instructor  if he/she presents a letter from an authorized representative of his/her government stating that there is no objection to the student receiving AFJROTC instruction.

3.  TRANSFER STUDENTS:  Students who transfer from Army, Navy, Marine, or other AFJROTC units will be admitted with full credit for training already received and with the permanent rank of their AS class level currently enrolled.

4.  DISENROLLMENT FROM AFJROTC:  Normally cadets will be disenrolled from AFJROTC as determined by the Senior JROTC Instructor and the Principal.  A cadet may be disenrolled for any of the following reasons:

a. Failure to maintain acceptable course standards such as:

            1.  Not wearing the uniform or wearing the uniform improperly.

            2.  Not maintaining proper grooming standards such as a proper haircut or

                 hair style.

            3.  Indifference to training leading to poor academic performance.

            4.  Poor or improper attitude leading to disciplinary reasons involving

                 undesirable character traits. 

            5.  Other actions which fail to meet the acceptable standards required of                         every cadet in the AFJROTC program including adherence to the cadet honor             code.

                        a. Individual request for release from the AFJROTC program completed                              within            the time allotted for class changes during a new semester                                            (normally about 10           days.)

5.      SQUADRON PRIDE:  We are proud of our unit legacy.  Our squadron is one of the most successful in our nation because of the commitment of you, the cadets.  We have been selected by the Air Force as an Honor/Outstanding Unit sixteen times since our organization in 1972.  This includes six times in a row from 1993 to 1999.  We have earned these honors because our cadets have respect for themselves, their fellow squadron members, their school and their community.

 6. CADET COMPLIANCE WITH RULES AND REGULATIONS:  Each cadet must comply with the rules and regulations of the Aerospace Science Department and must accept responsibility for care and maintenance of the Air Force uniform, textbooks, and other U.S. government property and Nevada R-5 School District property.

CHAPTER 4

CONDUCT AND MILITARY COURTESY

GENERAL CONDUCT:

Because of the pride we have in our squadron, we strive to always observe correct personal and military conduct at all times to reflect credit upon ourselves, our parents, our community, our school and the United States Air Force. 

1.  PERSONAL CONDUCT

Cadets will set and maintain high personal standards that demonstrate professional conduct at all times.

a. Cadets will not use abusive, vulgar, obscene, or insulting language.

b. Cadets also will not annoy or harass other cadets with insulting, inflammatory, insinuating, or defaming remarks or obscene gestures.

c. Cadets will not indulge in horseplay such as hitting, slapping, sparring, or wrestling that frequently develops into undesirable behavior patterns.

d. Cadets will not engage in other forms of physical contact such as romantic HAND HOLDING, HUGGING, KISSING, OR EMBRACING anywhere while in uniform.  They will also follow the Nevada R-5 High School Student Handbook and limit contact to hand holding while on school property or engaged in a school sponsored activity.

2.  CLASSROOM CONDUCT

a.     Cadets will enter the classroom quietly and talk quietly until the bell rings.

b.     Cadets are expected to be behind their seat when the tardy bell rings.

c,     Cadets will be at the position of "parade rest" while roll call is being taken.  They will respond to roll call by saying "here sir or here maam" when their name is called and come to the position of "attention."

d.     Cadets will be seated on order of the Flight Commander or instructor.

e.     Flight Commanders and instructors will be addressed as SIR or MAM.

f.      Cadets will not slouch in their seats, chew gum, put feet on desks or be inattentive to classroom activities.

g.     Cadets will raise their hand and be recognized by the instructor before speaking.

h.     Cadets will not stand up or leave their desks without the permission of the instructor.  There will be no talking among cadets without the instructor's permission.

i.       Cadets will not leave the classroom or visit the supply area without the instructor's permission.

j.       Cadets will have books, paper and pen or pencil for all classes.

k.           Cadets will not enter the instructors' offices for any reason without knocking first and being invited to enter the office by the instructor.

 

l.       Classroom distractions that interfere with classroom activities will not be permitted.  Appropriate special assignments will be awarded to those cadets that disrupt the classroom.  Failure to complete these special assignments when due will result in a zero for that assignment, a letter to the cadet's parents or guardians and possible loss of cadet rank.

m.    Any conduct that fails to meet the above standards will result in loss of privileges, field trips, promotions, etc.

3.  MILITARY COURTESY:  Because you wear the official United States Air Force uniform, a few rules about your conduct must be explained.  Your actions in public, especially while in uniform can create both good and bad impressions.  You may be surprised to learn that many people see you in your uniform will think that you are in the United States Air Force and this fact, among others, is why all cadets must display proper conduct and behavior at all times.

a.     Conduct:  When wearing the uniform each cadet must put forth the best and sharpest appearance that he/she can.  Even when not in uniform, each cadet must realize that they are judged by their actions and conduct.  Most people in the school know that you are in AFJROTC.  Occasionally, we have cadets that are the perfect role model while in the AFJROTC classroom, but act the reverse when in other classes and before other faculty members.  YOUR BEHAVIOR AND CONDUCT GO BEYOND AFJROTC AND AS A CADET YOU ARE EXPECTED TO SET A GOOD EXAMPLE AT ALL TIMES.

        

b.     Courtesy in Speech:  Cadets will use "YES, SIR or MAM," and "NO, SIR or MAM," when responding to the ASI, AASI, and cadet officers.  Cadets will also use polite address when responding to other members of the faculty.  Cadets will not refer to any member of the faculty by last name only but will use "Mr., Mrs., or Ms.

c.     Conduct and Promotions:  Some people stay in trouble much of the time.  If you are one of these people, you will not progress in the AFJROTC program.  We cannot appoint people as cadet leaders who constantly get suspended, give other teachers a "hard time" or otherwise misbehave.

d.     Saluting:  The military salute is one of the oldest forms of greeting among members of a military group.  Military members consider the salute as a courteous and respectful greeting between members and it is a tradition that binds military professionals together.         Each cadet will be taught the proper manner for saluting and the rules that govern its use.  There are special rules for cadets at Nevada R-5 High School governing the saluting areas with which you must become completely familiar.

         (1.) When cadets are in uniform and out-of-doors next to the school, they will salute the SASI, ASI, and Cadet Officers.  Failure to render the proper salute may result in demerits.

         (2). Remember, a salute is never given or returned while running.  The cadet will come to Quick Time (a walk) and render the salute when approximately six paces from the officer.  Cadet officers and NCOs should correct saluting violations in a courteous and helpful manner when such violations are made by cadets junior to them.

         (3). Cadets not in uniform may render the salute as if they were in uniform.

         (4). When the American Flag is raised or lowered from any flag pole; all cadets will assume the position of attention.  If in uniform, the cadet will render the "present arms" (salute) and hold it until the flag has reached the summit or base of the staff.  If the cadet is in civilian clothes, he or she will assume the position of attention with the right hand over the heart.  If a male cadet is wearing headgear, he will remove it and hold it to his left shoulder so that the right hand is over the heart.

         (5). Normally, the salute is not given when a cadet is indoors and not covered (i.e., not wearing headgear).  However, if cadets are in formation and participating in ceremonies, they will render the salute when appropriate (such as when given the command "present arms.")

         (6). A salute is also given when Reporting to the ASI or AASI in their office.  The proper sequence for reporting includes the rendering of the salute and the statement "SIR, CADET (Last Name) REPORTING AS ORDERED SIR," or as appropriate.  The cadet holds the salute until it is returned or acknowledged by the SASI or ASI.  When the meeting is over, the cadet salutes and holds the salute until the SASI or ASI returns it.  The cadet then leaves by the most direct exit.

 

         (7), If a cadet is late for a formation, he or she will approach the individual in charge when the formation is halted.  The tardy cadet will salute, and request permission to fall in. 

CHAPTER 5

 

AIR FORCE CORE VALUES AND THE CADET HONOR CONCEPT

AIR FORCE CORE VALUES

The Air Force has chosen the following core values:

            a. Integrity:  Honesty, truthfulness, and doing what is right all the time.

b.     Service Before Self:  To give of yourself to provide for the welfare of others.

 

c. Excellence in All We Do:  An old saying says “any job worth doing is worth doing well.”  We want to set high standards of accomplishment in every aspect of our squadron activities.  However, this also means striving to be the best in our class work at school, in our part-time jobs, and in our cadet activities. 

These values provide the foundation for being what we ought to be and doing what we ought to do as members of the cadet corps.  It is no accident that "integrity" is listed first.  It is the basis for our Cadet Honor Concept.

CADET HONOR CONCEPT

            "I will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do!"

            As a cadet, you must set an example for others to follow.  Your personal character must be above reproach because what you do reflects on all in the corps.  You must, therefore, work to build a strong character that will sustain you in stressful situations.  This begins with integrity.  Remember, others will NOT follow someone they cannot trust.

            Doing what is right is NOT always easy.  Sometimes you have to pay a high price for having the courage to stand by your convictions.  You must believe in yourself and in what is right.  Being a leader sometimes means making tough (even unpopular) decisions and carrying them out regardless of the circumstances.

            What if you tolerate a violation of the Cadet Honor Concept?  Then you become guilty of the violation by association.  In many cases, you will be tempted to abandon these ideals.  Some people have no problem with their conscience because they choose not to have a code of conduct and have no ethics.

            Our Cadet Honor Concept is an example of personal ethics in practice.  It represents a minimum standard for you to use for your moral character.  It will be a key factor in your overall professional and personal development.   

  

CHAPTER 6

THE CADET CORPS

 

DESIGNATION OF THE UNIT:

The AFJROTC Unit at Nevada High School is designated the Missouri 71st (MO-071) Air Force Junior ROTC Squadron.

 

UNIT HISTORY 

This cadet squadron was organized in 1972.  It has been an Honor/Outstanding Unit Seventeen times and a Meritorious Unit five times since its organization.  The other four years it was rated as a Satisfactory Unit.  There has never been an unsatisfactory rating for our unit thanks to the conduct and hard work of our cadet corps through the years.  MO-071 is one of the most decorated AFJROTC units in Missouri.  However, only YOU can keep the tradition going.

 

ORGANIZATION OF THE UNIT

1.  The organizational structure of the MO-071 Air Force Junior ROTC is according to AFROTCI 36-6.

2.  Each classroom period will be organized into a Flight and is designated by a letter of the alphabet (i.e., "A" Flight, "B" flight, etc.).

3.  Within each Flight there will be elements.  They will be designated by Arabic numbers (i.e., 1st Element, 2nd Element, etc.)

UNIT MANNING

 1.  The manning structure of the MO-071 Air Force Junior ROTC Squadron is also according to AFROTCI 36-6.

2.  Job descriptions are listed in this handbook.

 

(1)   The Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI) and Aerospace Science Instructor (ASI) will select the squadron commander, subordinate commanders and staff officers to fill the organizational requirements.  Selection will be based on the evaluation of the "whole" cadet's performance, volunteer statements and on the recommendations of the existing staff.

 

EVALUATION OF THE “WHOLE” CADET:   The "whole" cadet evaluation will cover the following categories:

            a. Integrity and Conduct:  Conducting oneself according to the core values and cadet             honor code at all times.

b. Service:  Doing things that benefit the squadron (e.g., helping in the office, displays for the classroom, presentation of ideas and assisting in activities that will make the unit better).  Also doing things that benefit the community through community service activities (e.g., Adopt-a-Highway, Nursing Home Visits, Santa's Workshop, etc.)

c. Leadership:  Performing and/or demonstrating acts of leadership that enhance the cadet program.

d. Scholarship:  Classroom attitude and overall application of studies.

e. Unit Support:  Participation in parades, flag ceremonies, unit fund drives, etc.

f. Appearance:  Proper wearing of the uniform and civilian clothing, haircuts, neatness, etc.

4.  The Squadron Commander and Staff will operate the squadron according to AFJROTCI 36-16 and this Handbook with a minimum of supervision from the Aerospace Science Instructors.

5.  The commanders will serve in their positions for the time designated by the Aerospace Science Instructor.  This will normally be one quarter or one semester.

 

6.  Staff members will generally serve in particular staff positions for a minimum of one semester unless relieved. (Unit Manning Document at Appendix 1)

  

 

CHAPTER 7 

PROMOTION/DEMOTION OF CADETS

 

1.  Insignia of rank is evidence of promotion and standing among fellow cadets.  Increased rank is also evidence of growing maturity, ability and willingness to accept more responsibility and leadership positions.  Of course, as in all situations, the official leadership positions are limited in the MO-071 Cadet Corps.  There is only one President of the United States...only one Principal of Nevada High School.  All cadets cannot be chiefs.  However, it takes more than one chief or one member to make an effective cadet squadron.  It takes a whole unit of ALL cadets working toward a common goal.

 

2.  Normal progression, based upon the criteria as follows:

AS-I    End of 1st Semester                        Airman

AS-II   End of 1st Semester                        Airman First Class

AS-III  End of 1st Semester                        Senior Airman

AS-IV  Beginning of 1st Semester            Staff Sergeant

a. There are two kinds of rank a cadet may hold (Permanent and Temporary).

(1)  Permanent Rank:  The rank is awarded based on years of satisfactory service in AFJROTC.  These ranks will be assigned as stipulated above:

(2)  Temporary Rank:  This rank is awarded based on the position to which the cadet is assigned and the performance of the cadet.  Since the rank is temporary it may not be carried over from one year to the next.  Temporary ranks are assigned only when the rank is higher than the permanent rank held.  When a cadet has both a temporary and permanent rank, the higher rank will be worn. 

b. Cadets will NOT necessarily be awarded the highest rank authorized for the position they are occupying.  Promotion will be based upon their performance in that position.  It will also be based on the “whole” cadet concept.

c. Generally, AS III and AS IV cadets will fill all the officer leadership positions.  Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the ASIs.

d. ROTATION OF LEADERSHIP POSITIONS:  The number of leadership positions is limited so a system of rotation of these positions may be used.  Rotation may be lateral (moving from one leadership position to another with the same rank where the change would benefit the squadron).  The rotation can also be up the ladder or down the ladder depending on the cadets’ performance or periodically as required to enable all deserving students who show leadership potential to demonstrate their capabilities.  Remember, all the positions in the squadron are important!

3.  CADET PROMOTIONS:

            Unlike grading or evaluation in other courses, you will be evaluated on a number of factors before being promoted.  This evaluation will be according to this chapter.  You will be evaluated based on the "whole person" concept.  Each of the following criteria will be used in analyzing the "whole person" concept:

a. Academic Leadership:  How well does the cadet perform on homework, quizzes, examinations, AFJROTC Notebook, class projects, and presentations in class?  Are projects and assignments completed on time and in a thorough manner?

b. Organizational Leadership:  How well does the cadet function in positions of leadership in the organization?  Has the cadet earned the respect of subordinates?  Does the cadet give proper consideration for subordinates?  Does the cadet show proper respect for those in authority (both in ROTC and in the school)?

c. Co/Extra Curricular Activity Leadership:  To what degree does the cadet carry interest and enthusiasm beyond the classroom?  Does the cadet demonstrate excellence in a number of outside unit/community activities?

d. Value-Centered Leadership:  Does the cadet follow the Cadet Honor Concept at all times?  Does the cadet encourage other students (in and outside ROTC) to follow these values?  Does the cadet support organizations within the school and community that further these values?

 

e. Cadet Responsibility:  There are many ways a cadet can show personal responsibility.  Among the most evident are:

(1.)  Promptness in arriving for classes or formations.

(2.)  Degree to which the cadet is prepared to respond to assignments/problems related to development of leadership.

(3.)  Manner in which the cadet takes responsibility for his or her actions.

f. Service:  How active is the cadet in service to the school and community (e.g., in local church activity, Adopt-a-Highway, Nursing Home Help, etc.)

g. Organizational Support:  To what degree does the cadet volunteer and perform duties above and beyond those required in normal squadron operations?

4.  SPOT PROMOTIONS:

Occasionally, the ASIs will award spot promotions to especially deserving cadets.  These promotions will be for one grade higher than the cadets’ present grade.  In this case, the ASIs will wave Time in Grade or Time in Service requirements.  This may be awarded because of recruitment or for going to Summer Leadership School.

 

5.  DEMOTION OF CADET OFFICERS AND NCOs:

There are several cases where cadet rank may be lowered.  During the normal rotation system of cadet jobs in the squadron, cadets may be reduced in rank based on the position they occupy.  Additionally, cadet officers and NCOs may be reduced in rank to their permanent rank before completion of their Tour of Duty for CAUSE.  Reasons for demotion in these cases might include:

a. Failure to maintain a passing grade in Aerospace Science and to maintain additional standards expected of a cadet officer/NCO.

b. Failure to satisfactorily perform duties listed in the job descriptions as described in this handbook.

c. Failure to satisfactorily perform additional duties as required by the Squadron Commander, ASI, or SASI.

d. Other conduct unbecoming a cadet officer/NCO in other activities outside of the AFJROTC.

Cadets who have been demoted for CAUSE can earn back their lost rank by performing in a manner that warrants promotion in the opinion of the ASIs.  They will probably also have to enroll in a self-study program by coming to school early and studying the AFJROTC classroom from 0730 – 0800 or staying after school and studying from 1500 – 1530.   

CHAPTER 8

 


GRADING SYSTEM

 

1.  CLASSROOM EVALUATION:

Cadets receive grades for their performance in the classroom.  They are a reflection of how the cadet is doing in the course work.  Unlike other classes, however, the grade in Aerospace Science is made up of two distinct parts, academic and leadership.

a. ACADEMIC GRADE:

The academic grade results from a cadet's participation in class, grades on written and oral assignments, and grades on tests.  These grades will be averaged at the end of each nine weeks to give the student an academic score.  At semester, cadets will take a semester test.  The academic score will be sixty (60) percent of the student's grade.

b. LEADERSHIP GRADE:

The leadership part of the cadet's overall grade results from:

 

            (1.)  Proper wear of the uniform on designated uniform days.

            (2.)  Scores on tests and oral or written assignments

            (3.)  Participation in class and in basic military drill during school.

The leadership score will be forty (40) percent of the cadet's overall grade.  However, a student MUST pass the leadership part of the course to get a passing grade.

2.  The cadet's semester grade will be an average of the two quarters plus the semester test.

3.  All grades are based solely upon what a cadet does in the academic and leadership classes.  Extra curricular activities will not help or hurt a cadet's grade.

 CHAPTER 9

 CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT ACCOUNT

1.  AIR FORCE PROPERTY:

All of your uniform (with the exception of shoes and socks) and equipment items are loaned to you by the United States Air Force.  This means ALL of your uniform items are the property of the Air Force.  Since the uniform and other equipment is on loan to you, it must all be returned when you leave JROTC.  YOU MUST ACCOUNT FOR EACH ITEM OF UNIFORM AND EQUIPMENT YOU RECEIVE AT ALL TIMES.

2.  PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY:

When you receive your uniform and other items of equipment, you will be required to initial for each item and sign a receipt.  Each item then becomes your responsibility.  Normally, all cadets do very well in taking care of the uniform.  If you lose it or willfully or negligently destroy part of it, however, you must pay for it.  The cost of each item will be the cost of the replacement item at the time your account is scheduled to be cleared.

3.  EQUIPMENT TURN IN OR EXCHANGE:

      a. The ASI is the equipment monitor for the Air Force.  When you turn in or exchange anything, deal only with the ASI or a designated logistics officer.

b. When you graduate or leave the squadron for any reason, you must turn in all items or pay for them before you can be cleared to receive your grades.  Seniors can not receive their diplomas or participate in graduation exercises without a clear AFJROTC account.  Additionally, the AFJROTC Certificate of Training or Certificate of Completion will NOT be awarded.  Cadets can keep the uniform shoes and socks.

c. If clothing item becomes unserviceable, turn it in to the AASI as soon as possible.  If the unserviceable condition is due to fair wear and normal use, the item will be replaced at no cost to you.  If clothing item does not fit properly, you should exchange it with the AASI as soon as possible.  If you have been told to exchange a clothing item, you must have it cleaned and pressed before you bring it in.

4.  DOs AND DON'Ts FOR TAKING CARE OF THE UNIFORM:

a. Do not leave uniform items in unlocked lockers or in other unguarded places.

b. Do not lend your uniform to another person or have another person turn in items for you.

c. DO WATCH YOUR FLIGHT CAP!  Tuck it in your belt if necessary to keep up with it.

d. Do not lend insignia or similar items.

PROPER WEARING OF THE UNIFORM


1.  Each cadet of the Missouri 71st Air Force Junior ROTC Squadron must wear the uniform properly.  We cannot over emphasize this since the uniform, except for the insignia, is the same uniform worn by the United States Air Force active duty personnel.  WEAR IT PROUDLY! 

2.  UNIFORM DAY:

Wednesday is uniform day and upper-class cadets MUST wear the designated uniform of the day as directed by the JROTC instructors.  Make up day will be Friday.  If you fail to wear your uniform on either day, you will receive a ZERO in leadership for that uniform day. 

3. The AF blue uniform is mandatory for wear when participating in official military functions such as color guard, honor guard, Veterans Day, base visits,  drill competition, or any other official military type function where uniform wear is deemed appropriate by the instructors. 

4.  CADET DRESS STANDARDS:

When wearing civilian attire, cadets will abide by dress standards outlined in the Nevada R-5 High School Parent and Student Guide Book.  When wearing the uniform, cadets will comply with AFROTC Instruction 36-9 and this Cadet Guide Book.

 5.  GENERAL RULES FOR WEARING THE UNIFORM:

*        Cadets will NOT participate in any anti-authority demonstration, anywhere whether in or out of uniform.

*     

a. Never mix uniform items.  In no case will you wear civilian coats, jackets or other civilian garments with the uniform. Neither will you wear Air Force items with civilian clothes (e.g., wearing your windbreaker with civilian clothes). (Exception:  On very cold days when you need an overcoat, you may wear a heavy civilian coat since we are not able to provide with an Air Force overcoat.  However, once you arrive at school, please take off your civilian coat and hang it in your locker.)

b. Only items issued to you are to be worn.  Never mix one uniform with another.

c. KEEP THE UNIFORM CLEAN AND PRESSED.

d. Wear your cap whenever you are outdoors.  Do NOT wear it indoors.

e. Place and wear the insignia properly.  Do NOT wear any other insignia than what was issued to you.

When it is too warm in any classroom for the blue coat, the cadet may remove it.  However, the cadet may not remove the necktie or roll up shirt sleeves.  All buttons must remain buttoned when the cadet is wearing the coat.  When the cadet leaves the classroom, the coat must be put back on and buttoned all the way.

s. Color Guard and Drill Team members may wear additional uniform items, insignia and devices that they are issued.

t. Uniforms may be temporarily kept in the storeroom immediately next to the JROTC classroom.  Uniforms should be neatly hung to preserve the crease and good appearance.  We recommend the cadets use a plastic hang-up bag to protect the uniform from getting dirty.  The cadet remains responsible for the uniform left in the storeroom.

u. Ropes are awards presented to cadets for performing certain extracurricular activities or for serving in certain cadet positions.  No more than two ropes can be worn, one on each shoulder.  White ropes must be worn on the left shoulder.  A cadet earns a white rope by participating in five color guards during a school year.  The cadet will sign a receipt when receiving a rope.  All ropes must be returned to supply when the requirement to wear the rope does not exist anymore or at the end of the school year.

CHAPTER 13

 

CO-CURRICULAR TRIPS AND PROJECTS

 1.      The Missouri 71st Squadron will have the opportunity throughout the school year to participate in co-curricular trips and projects.  These activities are designed to improve cadet camaraderie and further concepts taught in the classroom.

 

 

2.      Trips may include:

 

  1. AS-I trip to Whiteman AFB
  2. Class Trip to Joplin Field Day
  3. Flights on military aircraft/helicopter when available.
  4. Staff trip to an Air Force base and other points of interest (e.g., the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, KS).
  5. AS-II, AS-III trip to Science City
  6. All Cadet Trip to Worlds of Fun.

 

Cadets are expected to be in uniform for all trips to military installations.  On other trips, cadets will dress in uniforms when directed by the ASIs or in compliance with the Nevada High School Student Guidelines.

 

3.      Projects may include:

  1. Decorating More-Few
  2. Participation in a cadet floats for homecoming.
  3. Military Ball
  4. Participation in parades with color guards and drill teams.
  5. Local community service projects such as flag dedications, poppy passing, highway clean-up etc. 

 

4.      On trips when in uniform, all cadets are expected to show proper customs and courtesies such as saluting.  Additionally, cadets will not go outside changing areas in partial uniform dress.  Remember we are proud of our unit and we show that pride by our appearance at all times.

 

5.      Parental/Guardian Approval:  You cannot go on any trip with the MO-071 Squadron until you have turned in a signed medical release form.  Additionally, your parents/guardians must sign a release form before any orientation flights.  When we go on trips, you will ride the bus to and from the destination unless your parent/guardian and the principal have signed a release for you to travel with someone else.  This release must be given to the ASI or SASI the day before the trip.

 

6.      Attendance at Activities:  Cadets are encouraged to participate in the projects and trips that are offered through the JROTC program.  In the case of educational trips (such as visits to airports for Aerospace Science II), cadets are expected to attend since normally a report or class project will use information from the trip.  Any cadet who is not able to attend these educational trips will need to see the SASI and do personal research to be able to complete any assignments relating to the trip.

 

CHAPTER 14

 

COLOR GUARD/DRILL TEAM MEMBERSHIP

 

            Student membership in the AFJROTC Color Guard/Drill Team is highly encouraged.  Drill teams are a core part of our program as they are used to reinforce fundamental leadership objectives.   The Nevada High School MO-071 Flying Tiger Drill Team is an extracurricular sport activity.  Team practices normally begin in October, with the first competition in December.  The competitive season generally ends by mid-March.  Members of the team will travel throughout the region to compete against teams from other area schools.  For membership on the MO-071 Drill Team students must:

-  Be currently enrolled in an AFJROTC Aerospace (AS) course

-  Have no more than one F in any quarter

-  Maintain at least a C average in the AS course

-  Attend all practices unless excused by coach for valid reasons

   (see drill team handout)
