Regulation and Grading Policy

" Wear your uniform proudly! "

Schedule: There will be times when our schedule is altered due to an event, when this happens, we will inform the students ahead of time.  For the most part our schedule is as follows:


Monday  - Curriculum

Tuesday  - Academics/Uniform Inspection

Wednesday - Academics/Uniform Inspection

Thursday - Physical Training

Friday  - Physical Training


Cadets are required to wear their NJROTC Uniform once a week on the designated uniform day.  Normally this will be Tuesday and Wednesday, for all platoons, unless told otherwise by SNSI / NSI.   Cadets need to wear their uniform for the entire  day (the entire time they are at school.)

IF CAUGHT CHANGING OUT DURING SCHOOL HOURS WITHOUT PROPER  EXCUSE  GIVEN BY SNSI/ NSI CADET WILL RECEIVE AN AUTOMATIC "0" for grade. Keep in mind your teachers will report to us of any violation. 

Uniform wear is a graded item and is considered homework.  Cadets are graded on how they have placed insignia, the cleanliness of the uniform, that they have all proper uniform items, grooming standards, knowledge and military bearing.  The standards that are graded are given to each Cadet in their Cadet Reference Manual and have been explained in class. 


Grading Policy: 

1.  Failure to wear the uniform on uniform day (unexcused):  If a Cadet fails to wear their uniform on the designated uniform day (unexcused), they can wear it on Friday during drill day (not on a Physical Training day) and receive a grade as high as 80%.  If they fail to wear their uniform on the designated uniform day and also fail to wear their uniform on the next drill day, they will receive a grade of 0 (zero) for that week's uniform grade.


2.  Absent on uniform day (excused absence):  If a Cadet is absent on their designated uniform day and the absence is excused, they can wear their uniform on the next drill day (not a Physical Training day) and receive full credit for their uniform grade (same standards as if they had been present.)  If they fail to wear their uniform on the next drill day, they can wear their uniform on the very next academic day and receive a grade as high as 80%.  If they fail to wear their uniform on the first drill day following their excused absence, and then again fail to wear their uniform on the next academic day after that, they will receive a grade of 0 (zero) for that week's uniform grade.


3.  Grading Percentage:  30% Academics, 30% Uniform, 20% Physical Training, 20% Drill = 100%

   a.    Academic tests will be posted in pinnacle two weeks in advance (lectures are posted on this website)

   b.    Uniform inspection includes appearance (proper wear of uniform in accordance with regulations), grooming standards, knowledge                   (Cadet reference manual), and Military bearing.

   c.    Physical Training (PT) requires wearing the proper uniform (50% of the grade) and participation...the goal is to be able to do push-ups, sit-ups and run 4 laps (1 mile) in accordance with the cadet reference manual...I strongly recommend cadets continue to practice at home in order to achieve these goals. 

   d.    Drill requires closed shoes and desire to participate.


4. Extra Grades: There are numerous events at school, the community, and competitions at which cadets can earn extra uniform grades, drill grades, academic grades and PT grades.  These events are open to all cadets.  There is no make up work at the end of the quarter, semester or year.


5. Grades: 90 - 100 = A, 80 - 89 = B, 70 - 80 = C, 60 - 69 = D, 0 - 59 = F 

Please take the time to read and think through these grading policies.  They are briefed in class and discussed almost every uniform day.  Know what your responsibilities are if you fail to wear your uniform on the designated uniform day. If you have any questions about this policy, contact CDR McDonald or DCMC Peterson.
