Attendance Policy

Make sure you have the phone number or email address of your immediate supervisor!

GENERAL

Good attendance is a way of demonstrating your level of commitment to an organization.  It is important to properly prioritize how we spend our time.  Cadets is no exception to this.  Academic load, health concerns, or important family events are considered valid reasons to miss training.  

Many nominations are heavily influenced by attendance.  Cadets with good attendance records are more likely to be nominated for awards, medals, and exchanges.  

ATTENDANCE STANDARD

Cadets are expected to attend a minimum of 50% of mandatory training per month.  Mandatory training refers to Thursday parades, and citizenship functions.  If there are unique circumstances, taking a Leave of Absence should be considered.  For more information, see below under 'Terms.'

If unable to attend training, inform your immediate supervisor at your earliest convenience.  By doing so, you absence will be noted as 'excused.'  If we do not have any information on your status, you may be noted as 'AWOL.'
