FAQ's for the Link Crew Selection Process

What do I need to do to become a member of next year's Link Crew?
   1.  You need to fill out an ONLINE  application. This year's app requires new applicants to upload a 3 min YouTube video.
   2.  You need to fill out and RETURN a signed acknowledgement form. You will need to include a
current photo with it when you turn it in.
  3.  Turn in signed acknowledgement forms to the Counseling Office .
 
What do I do if I do not have online access and cannot fill out an application?
Get a library pass and fill the application out during your lunch or after school. As a LAST RESORT, ask for a paper application from the Counseling Office

When are the applications DUE?

Will you accept late applications?
No, late applications will NOT be accepted.
 
I forgot to include a picture or have my parent sign the acknowledgement form, will you still accept the application?
No, incomplete applications will NOT be accepted.
 
Is there anything else I have to do after I turn in the application?
You MAY be asked to attend a brief interview  On Monday, May 9 & Wednesday,  May 11, during 6-7 hours in the Counseling Office  if we need some more information from you.  Not all students will be interviewed.  Interviewees will receive a pass with a specific interview time from their first hour teachers if necessary.
 
What if I cannot attend an interview on the day that I am scheduled?
See Mrs. Schingeck in counseling for an alternate interview time.
 
What if I cannot make it to the training days or the day of Freshman orientation?
The days of training and the day of Freshman orientation are KEY to laying the foundation of Link Crew. If you cannot commit to the required dates listed on the application, please do not apply this year.  ***If you are selected as a Link Leader and do not attend the required dates, you will no longer be a Link Leader and will be dismissed from the Crew.
