ALEXANDRIA, Va., (February 20, 2015) – To support the U.S. military`s ongoing commitment to education, the U.S. Army Marketing and Research Group (AMRG) and national PTA have signed a memorandum of understanding forming the cooperation between the two organizations and their shared commitment to the education and development of our country`s youth. · A probation meeting may take place after the 9th absence and the student may be asked to bring a medical card for any future absence. The school can also send the district representative for a home visit. Students with excessive absences can be referred to the District School Attendance Review Board (SARB). „The U.S. Military and the National ZEP share an obligation to ensure that every child realizes their full potential, both in school and in life,“ said Otha Thornton, president of National PTA. The military has a large number of free educational resources aimed at improving students` availability for post-secondary education, manpower and military service. We are pleased to work with the U.S. Military to make their resources available to students and families across the country to help them excel in their studies and beyond. The national ASP includes millions of families, students, teachers, administrators and business leaders and municipalities dedicated to the educational success of children and the promotion of parental involvement in schools. The association prides itself on being a strong voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.
Membership in the ZEP is open to anyone who wants to get involved and make a difference for the education, health and well-being of children and adolescents. Based on the rules of the class and the code of conduct of the school`s students, students miss the break and receive notification to the parents of behavioral violations. Notifications must be signed by a parent and returned to the teacher the next day. The partnership with the National ZEP exemplifies how the military education program connects with educators, youth organizations, and schools to improve opportunities for young Americans, including the leadership, education, and career opportunities offered by military service. Students are present on time and in all classes and stay at school throughout the teaching day, unless they are sick or have apologized beforehand for a family emergency. · According to state and district guidelines, students are reported as late if they are late to school or are expelled prematurely from school before the end of the school day. . . .
