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.

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.
