IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT MAKE-UP WORK: (READ THIS)

ALL recruits start this program with the SAME opportunity to succeed.  After that, it is up to the individual recruit to follow directions, show up and do their work.   If a recruit CHOOSES not to do so, no exceptions will be made for them.  To do so would be unfair to the recruits who are trying hard and are turning in all required work.

It has been brought to Sgt. Roller’s attention that some recruits may have been told that they would be able to make-up homework assignments that they have already failed to turn in when they were due.  Or, that some recruits may re-take radio code or spelling tests from weeks in the past.

THIS INFORMATION IS NOT TRUE.  The RTM clearly explains how the academic portion of the explorer academy works.  IF you are absent, you can turn in homework that you missed – on the Saturday that you return – not sometime in the future.  Weekly testing may ONLY be made up the week after you were absent – or – the week after you took the test, IF you wish to try for a higher score.

There is no such thing as EXTRA CREDIT WORK in this program.

If you were informed otherwise, perhaps by a staff member or heard something from a classmate that is different from what is listed here, disregard it.
