This summer the District received notification that all PUHSD JROTC programs received a passing grade for the school year 2015-2016 U.S. Army Cadet Command JROTC Program Accreditation audit. Notably, the JROTC programs at Alhambra, North, South, Camelback and Trevor Browne received the “Honor Unit with Distinction Gold Star” for maintaining exceptionally high standards of training and discipline as determined by the Command Formal Inspection and Unit Report. This formal inspection conducted by administrators from the 5th ROTC Brigade in Texas occurs every three years in accordance with U.S. Army Regulations and is in support of the national JROTC AdvancEd certification. The inspection reviews curriculum and teaching in the classroom, Cadet training effectiveness, adherence to federal expenditure guidelines, school support and progress towards a continuous improvement program. These objectives are largely demonstrated by Cadet interaction, interviews and briefings with the inspectors.
PUHSD has over 2,000 students in Army ROTC Units, representing 11 high schools. Congratulations to one of Phoenix Union’s outstanding programs.
