• Basic Conduct Expectations



    Lying is making a statement that is intended to deceive or mislead.  A lie may be an oral or a written statement, or even doing an act, which, is purposely misleading or deceiving. 



    Stealing is defined as intentionally depriving someone else of his/her property without his/her permission.  If something is not yours, you should not take it without the permission of the owner.



    Some examples of cheating are:


    A.     Competition  During your association with AFJROTC, you will be in constant competition with other cadets.  Competition is one of the most important aspects of the Squadron training programs.  The result of competition will affect your progress through the cadet program.  It is expected therefore that you will compete fairly with your fellow cadets.  Cheating is not confined to any single area - it applies to your whole life as a cadet.


    B.     Work Credit In general, any work done for credit must be done without another cadet's help unless the instructor specifically authorizes such help.  The instructor accepts the work with the idea that you have done it yourself.


    Classroom Rules

    You must abide by the following rules when in the AFJROTC classroom and area:


    1         Always use “Yes Sir” “No Sir” and “Yes Ma’am” “No Ma’am” when addressing an instructor, a guest, or reporting to a cadet officer of higher rank.


    2         Non-JROTC students are not permitted to enter the JROTC classroom. Failure to follow this rule will result in the loss of 100 points on ones leadership grade.

    A       You are issued a verbal warning after you have violated a classroom rule and points will be deducted accordingly.


    B       If you continue to behave poorly, you are referred to the Vice-Principal and your parents are contacted and notified of your behavior.
