In order to protect the health and safety of employees and students, those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19.  If you answer yes to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or in a district office.  The screeners are accessible on our Covid-19 Screeners page.  Additional information about COVID-19 can be found in the district’s Covid Daily Report , COVID protocols, and Learning From Home Resource guide.

NJROTC-Awards and Promotions

Awards and Promotions

​Our Battalion believes in giving awards as quickly as possible after they are earned.  Our goal is to have earned awards handed out in class once a quarter.
Cadet rates, ranks, promotions, and position assignments are earned based on individual performance and demonstrated potential. Many factors are evaluated by the naval science instructors before awarding rates, ranks, promotions, and advancements and before cadet billet assignments are made. Cadets must continually demonstrate:
1)  High moral standards and good conduction
2)  Proper appearance in school and in-unit uniform
3)  Acceptable academic achievement
4)  Acceptable performance in carrying out assigned NJROTC responsibilities
5)  Acceptable level of participating in NJROTC activities and programs

Students entering Fivay’s NJROTC for the first time are assigned the grade of Cadet Seaman Recruit. Advancement beyond the initial grade in the enlisted rates is often based on performance, time in the unit, position assignment, and completion of certain military knowledge advancement tests. Achievement of officer or chief status requires an individual who has demonstrated superior quality leadership, integrity, personal appearance, conduct, and patriotism.

All rate advancements and rank promotions are determined by the naval science instructors. Unacceptable performance could result in a demotion.
