Current Policies and Campaigns

School districts throughout the country are revising their procedures and policies on military recruiting in response to concerns of parents, students, and civic associations such as the National PTA

Generally, these procedures cover four broad areas of concern: Student privacy; Recruiter access to students; Use of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) for recruiting purposes; and Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC).
