Quote from: Luis R. Ramos on August 31, 2019, 09:53:43 pmAnother issue with meeting at a school are member's interpretation of the school's policies regarding other organization. Two of our members are teachers at the school we meet, and we draw heavily on the school's students for our cadets. Whenever the issue of holding training at a park or another venue arises, this member argues we have to follow the Department of Education policy for school trips since we are considered by the school staff as a school club. Being a school club and not requesting authorization from school staff, nor filling out school permit trips puts those member's jobs in jeopardy. This has been going on for the thirty years the squadron has been at this school, with the knowledge of Group staff. A previous Group CC was talking about holding talks with school officials, a move discouraged by said member as "his job and squadron continuation 0would be in jeopardy." So if you end up in a school, make sure it is out in writing what are the conditions, whether members will have access to equipment, whether the squadron will have to submit to other rules that a school group would.

But it is not in my hands. Everyone else involved appears to like the arrangement. Cadets also receive club participation credits which probably would be eliminated if we stop being considered a club.
