Student Monitoring Status
a. The objective is to focus supervisory attention to a
student's progress in training, specific deficiencies, and
potential to complete the program. It may also be applied to
students who require supervisory attention while trying to
resolve personal issues.
b. The Flight Leader will place the student on SMS to
address substandard performance in a specific area.
c. SMS is intended as a short-term program. SMS requires
the setting of specific goals for removal from SMS or proceeding
with the elimination process. SMS goals should be tailored to
correct deficiencies as the Flight Leader and Class Advisor
determine or to address personal issues as the Operations Officer
determines. The goals and the required period in SMS must be
annotated in a supplemental ATF in the student's ATJ.
d. If the student achieves the goals within the SMS period,
or when personal issues are resolved, the student returns to
normal training flow. If the student is unable to meet the
specific goals of SMS or performance does not improve, the
student shall progress to an IPC or FPC.
