How does a parent find out where a scout is in his rank advancement? This is an important part of a scout's growth in our program. Each scout is responsible for recording their progress in the scout handbook. There is always an advancement report available on the bulletin board in the Scout Hut. Also, the responsibility lies on each scout to ask for help and information from a scout leader during meetings. Please support your scout in this "life skill" learning practice.
What is the EDGE Method? (Explain, Demonstrate, Guide & Enable) The Scout Handbook clearly explains the Rank Requirements for the EDGE Method needed. In order to "pass off" this requirement, each scout must choose their listed requirement, study and practice with another scout or scouts. When ready, it is the responsibility of the scout to request, from a leader, an opportunity, during a camping trip, to demonstrate their understanding of this requirement.
