the State Board of Education, and the local county Board of Education. EFFECTIVE 14 MAY 2005, NOW IT IS SACS

The POI for the JROTC program is broken down in four LET levels of training, LET-1
for the first year cadet, LET-2 for the second year cadet, LET-3 for the third year cadet, and LET-4 for the fourth year cadet.
The core curriculum is presented in the first year and then reinforced using the building block method for the second through
the fourth year.
The course of instruction, contrary to many, is not pro- military subject matter, it is primarily
instruction that teaches leadership, citizenship, patriotism, discipline, written and oral communications, team building,
self-esteem building, respect for constituted authority, health and safety, drug and alcohol abuse awareness, physical fitness,
nutrition, life skills, and history. The subjects taught in JROTC cuts accross the entire high school curriculum and after
classroom discussion, cadets implement what has been learned into a real world environment. They hone their leadership skills
by DOING and are constantly evaluated by their peers and instructors. All of these subjects enable the instructors to key
all of their efforts into building leaders for the twenty-first century and accomplish the mission of JROTC which is to motivate
young people to be better citizens.
Many POI enhancers with supporting videos, handouts, etc., have been provided and
allows the instructors to supplement the POI WHENEVER and WHEREVER they feel the need warrants the injection of this material.
Some of these include:
