Hazing is strictly forbidden. It is defined as the practice of directing someone of lesser rank to perform a humiliating act which entails the surrender of dignity and self respect or a hazardous act which exposes one to physical danger or bodily harm. Any form of hazing, whether verbal or physical, will not be tolerated within any AFJROTC unit or activity. In addition, requiring cadets, individually or as a group, to perform any physical action as a reprimand, punishment, or for failure to perform will also not be tolerated. Cadets will not condone or encourage any type of hazing or initiation rituals.

Examples of prohibited physical activities include, but are not limited to: push-ups, running laps, any other physical activity, or any inappropriate physical contact such as shoving, pulling or grabbing. Any form of verbal abuse, teasing, public rebuke or any attempt to otherwise humiliate a cadet is prohibited.  Harassment, such as improper or abusive language, and coercion of lower-level cadets for personal gain, is strictly forbidden. Misuse of authority will not be condoned nor tolerated. This prohibition is applicable to all AFJROTC unit activities, and includes instructors, cadets and any personnel involved with or participating in an AFJROTC unit or activity.

TARDINESS: You are tardy if you are not at your seat when the bell rings.  If you are late, you will sign the tardy log. You will be assigned after-school detention upon your third tardy.

MATERIALS: Bring your books, paper, JROTC notebook, and a pen or pencil EVERYDAY!

MAKE UP WORK: All missed work must be made up within three days of your return to school.  Tests will be made up at the convenience of the instructor. YOU WILL NOT BE REMINDED TO MAKE UP WORK. Students will only be given make-up work for absences that are coded as excused. Make-up tests may be more difficult than regular tests, since you have more time to study.

ATTENDANCE/RECOVERY POLICY: It is your responsibility to make up work within three days of any absent.  If you are absent on uniform wear day, you will be expected to wear the uniform the following day.  PT gear make up for absents requires a page and a-half hand-written current event paper.  Topic will be given by the instructor.

EXAMS, TESTS, & QUIZZES: Tests and most quizzes will be announced well in advance. Do not ask to be excused from a test or a quiz because you were absent the day before examinations.

SEATING: Cadets are to sit up straight in their chairs displaying good posture and a positive image.  Do not sit in a seat that was not assigned to you. This will result in you being marked absent. Keep your feet off the furniture; you’re not at home. Throw trash away at the end of class.  Do not get up from your seat without permission.

CHEATING: As a cadet, you should strive to live by the honor code: I will not lie, cheat, or steal nor tolerate those who do. You will receive a “0” on your test or work and the appropriate demerits for conduct unbecoming a cadet.

PRIVACY: No student may look at another student’s paper without permission. This is why they are folded.  Invasion of another student’s privacy will result in a “0” on your own paper.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: You will be quiet during all announcements.
