Students in this course are required to have a cumulative 2.0 GPA and be on either a competition Color Guard or Drill Team.  If a student resigns or is removed from their respective team they will be disenrolled from this course and placed in the appropriate Aerospace Science class for their grade level if a course is available.

Materials:Pen or pencil, 1 to 1 and ½ inch binder with lined paper, and notebook dividers.  Proper clothing and footwear for drill are required for class daily (no sandals or slippers, i.e., flip-flops).     

Expectations:  Students should have had a good night’s sleep and be properly groomed according to AF Regulations; be at their assigned seat, ready for roll call and the start of instruction when the tardy bell rings.  No talking when the Flight Commander or Aerospace Science Instructor is speaking.  Respond promptly with “Here, Sir,” or “Here, Ma’am,” when the Flight Commander checks roll.  All students are required to have an Edmodo account and check it twice a day for important posts and items added to folders.

Instructors will demand courteous and disciplined behavior.  We will treat all students firmly, fairly, and equally.

Attendance/Make Up Work Policy/Tardies:  Classroom attendance will be in accordance with the Osceola County Public Schools attendance policy.  Graded work, missed due to absence, will be made up in accordance with school policy.  When the student returns to school, work must be made up in the number of days absent plus one day.

Extra Help and Parent Contact:  Instructors are available after and before school, Monday - Friday for any necessary assistance.  Parents should also set up an Edmodo account with their son/daughter.  We will discuss any questions or concerns with parents.  E-mail is the preferred method of communication.  If you call, and I am not available, please leave a message, I will return your call promptly.  Please request parent-teacher conferences through the student’s guidance counselor.

Assessment and Grading:  Students will be assigned oral presentations and written reports along with daily class work.  They will be administered periodic written and practical examinations.  Each graded event will be assigned a numerical grade.  Semester assessments are multiple parts with practical and written portions averaged together.
