Regular attendance is critical to the completion of Star Levels, participating in and demonstrating competency in special training (FTXs, weekend workshops for leadership, marksmanship, etc) and consideration for promotion. Participation in all aspects of training throughout the cadet year is a requirement for maintaining eligibility for summer camps.
However, there are of course school, family, and health priorities that come first where a planned or unforeseen absence from training is unavoidable.
With busy lives and schedules, this is to be expected from time to time, but it is very important that a planned, or last minute absence be reported to the Administration Officer prior to the start of a training night, exercise, or event to ensure the cadet is marked as “excused” rather than “Absent Without Leave" (AWOL).
Unexcused absences count against the cadet’s attendance in a detrimental way while a reasonable number of legitimate excused absences do not.
