Troop 12 Policies & Proceduresscouter


Effective as of September 30, 2015:  Updated Transportation Policy

Effective September 30, 2015, the tour leader will no longer attempt to contact participants who are late to the meeting place for an event. The assembled group will leave at the “depart” time, and latecomers will have to meet the group at the event location.


Effective as of September 30, 2015:  Scout Cell Phone Use Policy

The troop leadership strongly discourages Scouts from bringing cell phones on Scouting events. However, if a Scout does bring a cell phone to a Scouting event, it must be kept turned off during the event, and may be turned on and used during the event only in certain circumstances.


Effective as of January 1, 2014:  Revised Code of Conduct

Troop 12 has a written Code of Conduct for all participants at all Scouting events. Scouts and their parent(s)/guardian(s) and adult Scouters are expected to read, understand, and abide by this code.


Effective as of September 2, 2012:  Definition of "Active" for Advancement Beyond First Class

Requirement #1 for the ranks of Star, Life, and Eagle, and the award of Eagle Palm, states that a Scout must be "active" for a minimum number of months after the award of the previous rank or previous Eagle Palm.  Troop 12 has developed a written definition of "active" so that Scouts and families can know the obligation more objectively.


Effective as of September 1, 2012:  Definition of "Active" for Summer Camp

Attendance at summer camp is a privilege extended to Scouts who have shown sufficient interest in the Scouting program to be active in the life of the Troop.  Troop 12 has developed a definition of the minimum activity required for a Scout to be considered to attend summer camp with the Troop. 


Effective as of August 29, 2012:  Election of the Senior Patrol Leader

The procedure for election and interim replacement of the Senior Patrol Leader has been updated.


Effective as of February 2, 2012:  Use of the Troop Meeting Space

Our allowed meeting space for Troop meetings is the Washington School gymnasium - period.  Scouts are allowed the courtesy of visiting the water fountain and the boys' room as needed, and are to return immediately; these are not play areas.  The water fountain and boys' room are the only reasons Scouts should be in the hallway adjoining the gymnasium, and Scouts are absolutely forbidden to enter any other hallway or any room other than the gymnasium.  Effective immediately:  any Scout caught playing or running in any hallway, or found in a hallway without an adult, except for briefly visiting the water fountain or boys' room, will have his parents called and be sent home.  We cannot risk losing the privilege of using the gymnasium because of someone who cannot follow directions.


Effective as of October 6, 2011:  Permission Slips and Money for Program Events

  1. Permission slips and money for all outdoor events other than summer camp must be turned in NO LATER THAN 8:00 PM (by our clock) on the date that they are due.  It is much too difficult to accept everything at the end of the Troop meeting (and sometimes after the meeting is over) when everyone is trying to leave.  Permission slips and money will not be accepted after 8:00 PM - don't be the family left out because you failed to plan ahead!  If you cannot be at a Troop meeting, or know that you will be late, turn the permission slip and money in a week early, or find a friend who will turn it in for you.
     
  2. When turning in money for outdoor events (other than summer camp) - no checks - cash in exact change, please plan ahead.  We have to parcel out money to Patrols so that they can buy their food - we cannot do that if you give us a check, or if several people give us large bills and expect change.  We are not set up to function as a bank.  Please help us help the Scouts.
