Team Member Expectations
Robotics team members are leaders by example. As such we hold ourselves to high standards. We have a place for everyone on our team as long as you always treat others with respect and try to exercise good judgment in school, at competitions, and when in the community. We also value your commitment to academics above all else, so you must maintain a 70 average in every class to remain on the team. To be out of school for a robotics related event, you must maintain an average of 75 in all of your classes. Failure to comply with the above policy may result in temporary or permanent suspension from the team.
