||Statement of Purpose:
The Troop 49 web site is to provide
information about Troop 49, its events and activities to the Scout
Family of Troop 49 that is in accordance with the Scout Oath and Law.
And to build character, to train in the responsibilities of
participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness for boys
and young adults. Current information about the events and activities
of Troop 49 is available for easy access and distribution,
particularly when someone misses a meeting handout.
Every effort is made to keep the information up-to-date and accurate.
The emphasis for web page design is on providing information and
limiting graphics so the download time is minimized. The layout of web
pages is kept simple and easy to maintain.
Additionally, scouts can meet the
requirements for Computers merit badge by creating web pages for an
event or activity.
- The Troop 49 web site must conform to
the Scout Oath and Law and to the Troop 49 Web Site Policy. These
policies reflect the current state of the Internet and shall be
revised as necessary. The Troop 49 Webmaster must approve all
- Full names, phone numbers, e-mail or
residence addresses of youth members are not allowed. Names of youth
members shall be limited to first name and first letter of the last
- Photographs in which youth members
can be easily identified shall not be used.
- No interactive forums.
- No personal information shall be
collected via the Troop 49 web site. The Troop 49 web site is for
distribution of information and not for collection of information.
As such, the Troop 49 web site complies with the Children's Online
Privacy Protection Rule.
- Web sites that are included as links
must conform to the Scout Oath and Law. Since we do not have control of
linked web sites, links must be checked periodically to verify that
they continue to meet these criteria. If any of the links are
inappropriate, please notify the Webmaster immediately.
- Scouts working on the Computers
merit badge need the approval of the merit badge counselor and
Webmaster before starting to create a Troop 49 web page. A scout
will typically be assigned to create a supplemental web page for an
event or activity under the guidance of the merit badge counselor.
The basis for the supplemental web page is that the scout can design
a graphics intensive web page without affecting the parent web page.
The scout has a lot of flexibility in creating a supplemental web
page, but it must meet the Troop 49 Web Site Policy. The scout must
submit the completed supplemental web page to the Webmaster who will
incorporate the supplemental web page into the Troop 49 web site and
