Team Member Expectations

Robotics team members lead by example and strive to be viewed as school leaders.  As such, members of the Robotics team hold ourselves to higher standard. The robotics team has a place for everyone, regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender, religious beliefs, etc Team 56 believes that everyone should always be treated with respect and dignity. Team members are expected to exercise good judgment when in school, at competitions, in the community, and represent the Robotics team and Bound Brook with pride. The Robotics team places a student’s commitment to their academics above all else. Students must maintain a 70 average in every class to remain on the team. If a student fails to meet this requirement, the student will be placed on Academic Probation and will be required to complete a weekly Academic Improvement plan until the next Mid-Marks or end of a Marking Period. Failure to comply with the above policy may result in temporary or permanent removal from the team.
