General - FREE SAT/ACT Prep Course for Scouts Posted Apr. 18, 2018
For 14 years, eKnowledge SAT/ACT Prep Project have teamed up to donate over 225,000 programs worth over $55,000,000 to students and families in over 40 countries. We wanted everyone to have access to the full array of SAT/ACT prep materials and we didn't want money to be the reason why a student did not have access. Our goal: help families and student obtain superior SAT/ACT preparation programs for little or no cost. We constantly remind ourselves that without you, we have nothing.

The Project waives the complete $350 course price for the SAT or ACT Prep Programs. The Program works on all devices and computers: iOS, Android, Google, Apple, and PC.

*The $350 program price is paid by the Project partnership and sponsors. There is a fee of $19.99 paid by the student that covers the cost of streaming, student support, customer support, and materials. All student fees are reinvested to improve the program and reach more families. The Project does not create a profit.

We want to thank eKnowledge for their support to our Scouting Families for offering this course at such a low, low price. Click on More Information and follow the link to get your SAT/ACT Prep Course today!

General - ScoutBook helpful tips Posted Apr. 12, 2018
Here are some helpful tips on what to do in ScoutBook when a scout transfers to a new unit, like when a Webelo crosses over into a Boy Scout Troop;
Prior to moving a Scout to another Unit, please see that the following is performed.
1. End all Leadership positions
2. Make sure to add the new Unit Admin as a connection to the Scout with full control.
3. Remove all Adult Connections in the previous Unit by clicking Pack Roster > select the Scout > Scout Connections > locate and select the Leader > Remove Connection.
4. Edit the current membership to add an End date. You can do this by clicking Pack Roster > select the Scout > Scout's Membership > select the Current Membership > add Date Ended > Update.
5. Add the Scout under the new Unit's roster by clicking My Dashboard > My Account > My Connections > Select the Scout > Scout's Membership > +Add > Enter the Council, Unit Type, Unit Number, BSA Unit Description, Patrol(optional), and a Start Date > Update.
6. The New Unit Admin can approve the Scout by clicking Troop Roster > select the Scout > Scout's Membership > Current Membership > check off Position Approved > Update.
7. Leave your connection to the Scout until you know that the other Unit has approved the Scout, then remove your connection.
Please note, all application processes continue to be handled through the Council. The Scout's registration under the new Unit must be fully processed for Scoutbook to continue syncing their Advancement.
