      Health and Wellness Program
Each year group (freshman through senior) completes a different course. The course titles
are AFJROTC 1 – 4. However, each course actually consists of two sub-courses identified
as Aerospace Science (AS) and Leadership Education (LE), plus the Health and Wellness
Program. The student will typically spend two days per week in AS class and two days in
LE class. Lt Col Slater teaches all AS courses and CMS Futral teaches all LE courses. On
Fridays, all cadets participate in the Health Wellness Program.

                          Aerospace Science 1– Survival
This course is a synthesis of basic survival instruction and will provide training in skills,
knowledge, and experiences necessary to successfully perform fundamental tasks needed
in a survival situation. Classroom instruction and field exercises are augmented by
videotape training.

Aerospace Science Course Objectives:

1. Know the elements of surviving.
2. Know the necessities for maintaining life in a survival situation.
3. Know how medical procedures, clothing, and shelter can provide personal protection for
   a survivor in a survival situation.
4. Know how to travel and prepare for recovery in a survival situation.

    Leadership Education – Citizenship, Character, and Air Force Traditions
This is an introductory course designed to acquaint the new student with the Air Force
Junior ROTC Program. The topics range from a general overview to specific customs and
courtesies unique to the AFJROTC environment. The overall objective of the first year of LE
is to help the student be successful in high school by providing instruction on self-control,
time management, study skills, personal responsibility, citizenship, stress management,
drug and alcohol awareness, and health / fitness. In addition, the students will learn the
importance of drill and how to drill effectively as a team.

Leadership Education Course Objectives:

1. Understand the purpose, structure, and customs and courtesies of the Air Force Junior
    ROTC.
2. Know the history of the military uniform.
3. Know the Air Force Junior ROTC uniform and standards for dress and personal
    appearance.
4. Know the United States Air Force core values.
5. Know how to maintain appropriate personal hygiene and grooming.
6. Know the main causes and effects of stress.
7. Know how to set and achieve personal goals.
8. Know how to communicate effectively.
9. Know how to seek help for an eating disorder.
10. Know the difference between medicine and drugs.
11. Know the dangers of drug abuse.
12. Know the history and courtesies rendered to the flag of the United States and the
    National Anthem.
13. Know the role and functions of government.
14. Know the duties and responsibilities of citizenship.
15. Know the content of the United States Constitution.

                               Rules – Procedures – Policies

USAF Uniform policy – Cadets are required to wear the issued Air Force JROTC uniform on
a weekly Uniform Lab Day (ULD). Unless instructed otherwise, ULD will be every
Wednesday (starting 29 August 2012 for AS 1 cadets). A graded uniform inspection (25
points possible) will be conducted at the beginning of class. These inspection scores add
up to a significant portion of the LE percentage of your grade (see grade formula page 4).
Failure to wear the uniform, as directed, will result in a failing course grade and
dismissal from the program at the end of the semester.

   1. Shirt will be tucked-in at all times – all cadets will wear a white v-neck undershirt in
      uniform when the open-collar shirt is worn. The undershirt must not be visible around
      the neck when not wearing the tie/tab, nor hanging out your uniform sleeves.
   2. Pants must be hemmed appropriately – no “sagging.”
   3. Males – issued shoes with black socks – females have the option to wear either the
      issued shoes or 1½ “pumps” (plain black leather that are rounded toes with a heel -
      no high heels).
   4. Issued belt / buckle.
   5. Zip-up windbreaker (if cold) – Do not wear the button-up service coat unless
      instructed to do so. Do not mix civilian clothes with uniform items.
   6. Hats will not be worn at school (SHS has a “No Hat Policy”).
   7. Air Force grooming standards apply only when in uniform – cadets refusing to meet
      these standards will be prohibited from wearing the uniform, receive a zero inspection
      grade for the week, and will be dismissed from the program at the end of the
      semester if uniform wear continues to be an issue.
   8. Students not in uniform on ULD will receive a zero ULD score. Only students on an
      excused absence will be permitted to make up a missed ULD – must wear the
      uniform on the first day returning to school.
   9. Students in ISS / Alternative School will not wear the uniform on ULD days, but must
      make-up any missed ULD on the first day returning to regular class. Students
      failing to wear the uniform on the first day returning to regular class will receive a zero
      ULD score.

Uniform Turn-in Policy – students must return all items issued when they leave the
program, except shoes and socks. Students are issued numbered uniform items and must
return the specific numbered items signed for. Students will be charged for all damaged /
missing / dirty items. All dark blue items must be dry cleaned. All light blue items must be
laundered with a light starch. A dated launderer receipt must be attached. If student
returns the uniforms uncleaned, a $20 cleaning fee will be assessed.

Homework policy – All homework assignments are scheduled in the syllabus. Each will be
collected at the beginning of the class period on the scheduled due date. Homework is not
a team activity!

1. The Cherokee County ten day rule for make-up work does not apply to long-standing
   assignments, and since all AFJROTC assignments are listed in the syllabus they are
   considered long-standing. In AFJROTC, it is expected that the student will turn in the
     assignment on his/her first day back to school following an absence. If a student is
     going to be absent for an extended period of time, the instructors will provide, upon
     request by a parent/guardian, all homework sheets ahead of the scheduled release date
     (the date the previous homework sheet is collected). Make-up work for unexcused
     absences will not earn full credit.

2. No form of homework will be accepted other than the homework worksheet or workbook
   provided by the instructor. If your workbook / homework sheet is lost, it is your
   responsibility to obtain another from the instructor before the assignment due date.

3.   Students scheduled for ISS / AS must bring their syllabus and the appropriate work with
     them. Assignments due while in ISS / AS must be turned in to the ISS / AS monitor not
     later than the scheduled due date.

4. Quiz questions come directly from the note takers (provided for each section) and the
   homework. Homework is graded and then returned for your use in studying.

5. All work missed due to an absence must be made up. Make-up work for unexcused
   absences will not earn full credit. It may only count up to 70%. In addition, students who
   are on Out Of School Suspension (OSS), may not earn a grade of more than 70%. The
   responsibility for arranging to complete make-up work is to be assumed by the student
   and parent in conjunction with the teacher.

Health and Wellness Program – The program is based on the President’s Physical Fitness
Program, and cadets will be tested using those standards. All cadets must participate in the
Health and Wellness Program each Friday, unless temporarily excused by a signed medical
doctor’s note due to injury. This is a fitness program consisting of outdoor sports and
activities and inside student led exercises or CD-driven workouts (i.e. Tae Bo, Jazzercise,
etc.) There is no requirement to “dress down” in PT clothing; however, you must wear
clothing appropriate for exercise or activity and tennis shoes for running or outdoor
activities. There is a dressing room in the ROTC office. One Friday each month we will go
outside for a different activity (i.e.; soccer, Frisbee football, etc.). We will notify you before
we schedule an outside activity, and you are required to bring clothing appropriate for that
activity, including tennis shoes. If you fail to bring the appropriate clothing for a Health and
Wellness activity you will not be permitted to participate, and you will receive a zero score
for that week.

Grading formula:

Aerospace Science (AS).………..............40%
Leadership Education (LE)......................40%
Health and Wellness………………….…..20%

You may add up to 15 points to your final semester grade through merits earned by
participation in AFJROTC extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.
