Broadcasting Application (II, III, and IV)

Guidelines

Being a member of our staff requires work beyond the normal school day; for example, Broadcasting II students frequently need to take pictures and videotape at athletic and other school events which will be included in the grade. Successful applicants must:

o be dependable.
o have strong planning skills.
o possess the ability to meet set deadlines.
o be willing to work as a team member.
o show integrity.
o present oneself with a positive attitude.
o express a willingness to improve.

If you feel that you can meet these expectations, continue answering below!

Note: For this course, one will need:
Broadcasting II - two recommendations from teachers
Broadcasting III - one recommendation from a teacher
(Broadcasting IV - no recommendations required)
It is preferred that one chooses to ask those who teach English, Theatre, Art, and/or Yearbook, but it is not required. These will not be seen by the student. Students can ask teachers which of the two methods they prefer:

1) If the recommendation is written in hardcopy form, found at my classroom door, it will be placed in my mailbox by the teacher.
2) If it is online, it will automatically be sent to me.

Applicants are warned that recommendations could make or break an acceptance.
