NJROTC
Conduct in the NJROTC Classroom | Print |
By the very nature of the NJROTC program, the NJROTC classroom follows different procedures than other classrooms at Penn Hills.  The procedures outlined below are designed to instill a sense of discipline and military decorum in the classroom:

  1. Daily Procedures.  Students are to arrive at the NJROTC classroom in time to be at their desk for muster BEFORE the bell rings.  The Platoon Commander will call the class to attention when the late bell rings, take roll, and give the muster report to the instructor.  The Platoon Commander will then lead the class in the Pledge of Allegiance.  The Pledge is NOT OPTIONAL in NJROTC.  When the Platoon Commander says “Seats,” the cadets sit in their assigned seat.  When the bell rings for dismissal, the class will come to attention and wait to be dismissed by the Platoon Commander.  No cadet is to move from his or her assigned area until dismissed.  Any cadet who sees a teacher, administrator, parent or other adult enter the classroom should immediately call “attention on deck” and all cadets should come to attention next to their desks until the instructor orders “carry on.”  Platoon Commanders will use the first 5 minutes of class to drill cadets in Orders to the Sentry/Chain of Command, push up challenge etc.
  2. Class Materials.  Unless the instructor has specifically indicated otherwise, cadets are expected to bring the following items to each class: (a) Cadet Note-Taking Sheets,(b) Paper and pencil.  On designated drill days, cadets should bring a jacket or sweater (if needed) and wear appropriate shoes for drilling outside, weather permitting.
  3. During class, do not talk when the instructor or another student is talking.  Respect for your shipmates is the operative word.   If you have something to say, hold up your hand to be recognized.  Class periods are not times for socializing- there are plenty of opportunities outside of the daily class periods.
  4. During times when a test is being given, no talking is permitted.  All students must make sure they have their own “clicker” for electronic tests.
  5. Sit up in your chair and remain alert.  If you are ill, ask for a pass to see the nurse.  Do not put your head down on the desk or close your eyes to nap in class.  
  6. Only material related to the NJROTC may be out or in use during your NJROTC class period.  Letters, books, magazines, and assignments from other classes are to be put away before muster and may not be brought out without the permission of the instructor.  Non -NJROTC material will be picked up by the instructor and may not be claimed until after school that day.  Cadets are not permitted to work on non-NJROTC homework during NJROTC classes without permission from the instructors.  CELL PHONES ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED DURING CLASS TIME.
  7. Failure to turn in assignments on time will result in a grade of zero being assigned.  Late turn-in of the assignment is allowed, for a reduced grade.  Extra credit may be available to restore full credit for a late assignment but this will not always be the case.
  8. Food/Drinks/Gum - Chewing gum will be permitted at the discretion of the instructors.  Food or drink may be allowed in the NJROTC classroom during non-class periods, and at other times specifically authorized by the instructors.  The instructors will not tolerate snapping of gum, or gum being disposed of improperly, (such as under a desk or chair).  Chewing of gum detracts from military bearing and is not permitted while in formations, such as during inspections or drill exercises, whether in or out of uniform.
 
Conduct in the NJROTC PT Sessions | Print |
The following apply during NJROTC PT sessions:

Gym Session Procedures
  • Cadets are to arrive at the Gym BEFORE the late bell rings.
  • The Platoon Commander will direct the group to the locker room (male – female).  When everyone has changed into PT gear, the Platoon Commander will conduct muster, report, and form the platoon for the Daily 7.
  • The Platoon Commander may conduct the Daily 7 or call cadets to take charge of the platoon for exercises as they see fit.  No Daily 7 exercise count may be less than 10 repetitions.
  • Seven minutes prior to the end of the period, the Platoon Commander will dismiss cadets to the locker room by group (male - female).
  • While waiting for their turn in the locker room, all remaining cadets will be seated on the gym deck.
  • When all cadets have changed, the Platoon Commander will form the platoon and review the gouge.  When the bell rings for dismissal, the class will come to attention and wait to be dismissed by the Platoon Commander.  No cadet is to move from his or her assigned area until dismissed.
  • Any cadet who sees a teacher, administrator, parent or other adult enter the gym should immediately call “attention on deck” and all cadets should come to attention next to their desks until the instructor orders “carry on.”
  • Skylarking in the gym is prohibited.
  • Unless the instructor has specifically indicated otherwise, cadets are expected to bring the following items to each PT session: (a) sneakers, (b) black or red PT shorts; and (c) Navy-issued PT shirts.
  • Navy-issued sweat pants may be worn in lieu of the shorts.  Cadets will be graded accordingly if they fail to wear the proper PT uniform.
  • Cadets in non-issued gym gear may PT but cannot be in a leadership position.
  • You may not PT in street clothes and you cannot make up the grade for that day.
  • Cadets who miss PT due to bona-fide medical reasons (medical practitioner’s excuse required) are not required to make up missed PT.  You may do so if you need the credit.  A Medmis does not count for or against you.  Note:  Parental excuses for missing PT will be honored but will be treated as an absence and will be graded as a 0 until made up.
  • All PT grades must be made up before the end of the 9-week session in which the miss occurred.  You may make up a legal absence by participating in PT during another period than you own on PT days (with a legal excuse from your classroom teacher).  You may also make up a missed PT session by doing at least 25 push ups and 35 crunches in 2 – 2 minute intervals and running the Isometric Mile.  This is to be done while your platoon is conducting the Daily 7.
  • You must be in the proper PT uniform to make up a missed PT.
