ROTC to launch at Golden Valley

first_img The district hopes to have at least 100 students enrolled in the class at Golden Valley High School by its second year. Crandall said the district will continue to look at programs only available on one side of the valley and will try to offer them for the other side of town. For example, plans are in the works to bring Action meetings, a parent and teen support group for drug and alcohol addictions, to Golden Valley High. At present, the weekly meetings are only offered at Saugus High School.

The elective class focuses on leadership and has both classroom and physical-education components. Because students work outside on drills, a smaller and softer version of boot camp, they can get credit for physical education. In addition, students participate in community-service activities. Science credit is also available to those enrolled in the aerospace portion of the program. The Air Force develops the curriculum and provides textbooks, said Leslie Crunelle, assistant superintendent for educational services. “The program provides opportunities for students. It provides ways for them to do community service and give back to the community,” Crunelle said. “It provides a link to adults as well as leadership and discipline.” Superintendent Jamie Castellanos said military doctrines are not taught in the classes, although military careers and college support through G.I. bills can be discussed. But military recruitment is off-limits. SANTA CLARITA – ROTC classes will soon be offered on both sides of the valley to students in the William S. Hart Union High School District. An Air Force Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps unit is coming to Golden Valley High School with classes starting in the fall. All high school students are welcome to sign up. It’s the second ROTC program for the district, which currently has the class at Valencia High School. Students throughout the district have poured into the class. Now some from the valley’s east side will have a shorter commute with its second location at Golden Valley High School. The need for a second ROTC class grew along with the valley’s population and blossoming enrollment in local schools, said Kathy Crandall, assistant principal at Golden Valley. last_img read more
