Approve Activities Calendar for Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) – 2016/2017
The JROTC activities calendar is developed and presented for School Board approval each year.  A list of JROTC co-curricular activities from September 7, 2016 through January 31, 2017 is attached.

Approval of this calendar allows students to participate in related JROTC in-county and out-of-county activities for 27 high schools and 1 career center.

• Improve the high school graduation rate • Provide a student-centered learning environment that engages every child
Fees for these activities will be funded by school internal accounts, military budget, and JROTC budget - Project 6200.  Participation fees may be per school or per student depending on the activity.
Over 5,000 students participated in JROTC during the 2015/2016 school year. Activities will be evaluated by the program supervisor based on the number of students participating and the impact on student achievement.
