Plano ISD Junior ROTC Programs Earn Program of Excellence Distinction

January 6, 2017

The three Plano ISD Junior ROTC Battalions underwent their formal inspection process directed by Army Cadet Command 5th Brigade of Ft. Sam Houston. The Wildcat, Panther and Wolf Battalions all earned the JROTC Program of Excellence Distinction which is symbolized by the coveted gold star. This places these three programs in the top 10% of the more than 1,700 Army JROTC programs around the world.

The inspection activities include a detailed briefing by the battalion cadet staff regarding the CIP and their individual responsibilities related to the plan; a cadet briefing on the service learning done by the battalion as part of the curriculum; inspection of individual cadet and instructor portfolios; a series of required unit reports. In-ranks inspection of all cadets includes proper wearing of the uniform. Verbal questions regarding rank and insignia components are scored on a rubric. A final overall score between 1 and 100 is calculated.
