During the course of the school year, various branches of the military visit the high school to talk with interested students. These visitations usually occur during junior and senior lunch times. More information about all branches of the Armed Services, military careers and college savings programs can be found at www.todaysmilitary.com.
No Child Left Behind
Military notification of names/addresses for Juniors
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires the school district to provide students’ names, addresses and home phone numbers to military recruiters when requested.
See the attached form on the left for students and their families who wish to “opt-out” of this provision. We are asked to provide these lists after September of a student’s junior year. A copy of this form is mailed home to all junior and senior parents in August of the new school year. This form should be completed by September 30th. Completion after that date is permissible, but will only cover lists generated from the submission date forward.
Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) - Although this test is only required for those seeking to enter a branch of the military, it is a test that is offered to students in November of their junior year. The vocational infmoation it provides makes it extremely useful as a career search tool. Score reports are sent directly to the test taker and the high school counselor. Scores are only provided to military officials with the consent of the test taker. Students can sign up with the school counselor if they are interested in taking it. There is no fee for the test.
