TN-20021 Cadet Contract
Disenrollment Procedures are as follows:
- The SASI must be allowed to disenroll an AFJROTC cadet at any time during the academic year with proper cause.
- Disenrollment from the AFJROTC program is IAW AFJROTCI 36-2010. Disenrollment is a last resort and must be preceded by documentation and corrective counseling. However, it is necessary in some cases, in order to maintain the morale and discipline of the unit.Instructors must work together with the cadets, their parents, unit cadet leaders, school counselors and administrators to resolve these issues. However, when these efforts are unsuccessful, the SASI must be allowed to remove the cadet from the AFJROTC program.
- A maximum of three weeks is sufficient time to complete this entire administrative process. The cadet either chooses to comply as required or is removed from AFJROTC.
- These students can be placed wherever the school administration sees fit, but it is the HQ AFJROTC position that these students must be removed from the AFJROTC class and disenrolled. Cadets may be disenrolled from AFJROTC based on any other conduct related reason deemed appropriate by the AFJROTC SASI or the principal.
