A famous Economist - Milton Friedman stated, "I am in favor of cutting taxes under any circumstances and for any excuse, for any reason, whenever it's possible."  

 

Col was recently asked, How do I Join Cadet Staff?

First - you need at least one full year as a cadet to qualify.  We have positions on staff that are selected and others that are volunteer.  Each Cadet Commander has some purview on how their staff is selected, and I leave it to them to inform me who is on staff.  There are a few positions like Cyber Patriot Commander that I directly assign based on experience.
If you are active - and want to be on staff, the Cadet Commander and senior staff will be your first step.  They assign a new staff after each Change of Command.

GRADING POLICIES 

 

Uniform Grade Policy
On first occurrence: If cadets are not wearing a uniform but are wearing their PT shirt, they will earn a 60% on inspection day. If they are not wearing a uniform or PT shirt, they will earn a 50% on inspection day if within grooming standards. Cadets can bring this grade up by wearing a uniform on a non-inspection day.
On second and future occurrence: Cadets not in proper uniform will earn a "zero" grade. This can be made up by wearing a uniform on a non-inspection day. 

  

PT Grade Policy

Cadets who do not come to class on a scheduled PT day can make up their grade by performing 30 minutes of physical exercise on their own at home and bringing in a note (or email) signed by their parent or guardian explaining what their 30 minutes of exercise consisted of.   

 

 

FAA motto: "We're not happy, until you're not happy".
