    This was posted on the 2017 page. Im a little confused because I thought BCT 2 started with the march to JV. If this is true, what will the basics do between now and then? Again thanks from a clueless parent.

    I presume BCT II means the change in cadre. Today starts the third summer session for upperclassmen and the basics will have new cadre when they get back from the rodeo.

    Yes. Today was transition day. If it was like previous years, while the basics were at the rodeo, BCT1 cadre moved out and BCT2 cadre moved in and were waiting when they returned.

    I believe the talk on the parent's network was that it was a cost-savings to cut Jack's Valley to two weeks this year. And that some of the time there in previous years was spent on things that could easily be done elsewhere.
