Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Mike Mestan, Army JROTC Senior Army Instructor
LET - III
This course is a continuation of JROTC 2, and places the student in a higher leadership echelon with increased responsibility and authority. It continues to reinforce all previous instruction in leadership and citizenship, as well as other selected subjects listed in the 9th and 10th grade courses. In most cases, the depth of theory and practical application exercises have been increased and broadened to create a more definitive and challenging group of experiences for the students. Students in the 11th grade may take this course without completing either the two previous courses, but would find it more rewarding by having participated in one or both. Leadership training of JROTC 953301 includes managerial techniques; aspects of mutual leader/subordinate respect; duties of the leader/manager; the building of teamwork, team spirit, and organizational morale; communication channels and flow; the problem solving process; staff supervision; staff functions and preparation for evaluations, inspections, and ceremonies. Students will be required to attend periodic officer and staff meetings, after school, to gain experience in the conduct of Corps organizational functions and business, as well as participate in the planning of upcoming functions. Extra-curricular activities and field trips may be available to enrolled students. No form of military obligation is incurred. Elective credit is granted for each semester of JROTC unless the student chooses to use JROTC as a waiver for the state-required physical education.
This course is a continuation and culmination of all previous leadership training and placesstudents in the highest leadership positions of the cadet organization. Enrollees are placed in senior level command or staff positions commensurate with their previously demonstrated potential and abilities. They are required to perform the functions of their position assignments in support of the cadet organization. All senior level students must be able to work independently, or as part of a command/staff team on the many tasks assigned to them. Practical “hands-on” training is emphasized and includes assuming command; planning, organizing, and delegating responsibilities and tasks to subordinates through operations orders, training outlines/schedules, and memorandums; developing all echelons of subordinates; developing systems of rewards/corrective actions; counseling; and building and nourishing teamwork. Enrolled students may be eligible to participate in extra-curricular activities and selected field trips. Senior cadets will be required to periodically conduct officer calls and staff meetings after school hours. Leadership and managerial experiences gained from participation in this course of instruction can easily be applied to the student’s personal, academic, business and professional interactions. The course is designed to assist them in their next step in life, regardless of the particular path chosen. Additionally, emphasis is placed on applying to colleges, applying for scholarships, and understanding the process of college admittance. No form of military obligation is incurred. Elective credit is granted for each semester of JROTC unless the student chooses to use JROTC as a waiver for the state-required physical education requirement. See waiver policy at the conclusion of this section.
