3 INTRODUCTION Purpose of this document is to provide concise guidance to Scouters in the Blue Grass Council on the policies and procedures relating only to the Eagle rank. This information is intended to supplement the BSA publications listed in the References section, below. National BSA policies and procedures, as stated in national publications, will have precedence over this Blue Grass Council document. In the event of conflicting information between revisions of national documents, the later publication will prevail, unless specifically stated herein. Specifically, this document addresses those areas in which the BSA policy allows council discretion and presents procedures for carrying out BSA policy within the Blue Grass Council. An electronic version of this document is posted on the Blue Grass Council web site (Ref. 1). The requirements for the Eagle Rank are clearly listed in the Boy Scout Handbook (Ref 2). Further requirements and limitations concerning the Eagle Leadership Service Project are presented in the Eagle Leadership Service Project Workbook (Ref. 3). While other BSA publications provide added discussion, these two resources provide all the requirements. As stated in Advancement Committee Policies & Procedures (Ref. 4), these requirements must be strictly adhered to and nothing shall be added, changed, or waived except as authorized and approved for Scouts with Disabilities (Ref.6). It is the duty of the Scouters in the Blue Grass Council to ensure fair, consistent adherence to these requirements. A Scout who earns the Eagle rank in one district should be held to the same standards as a Scout in another district. All monies earned for the Eagle project will be used for the project. Any residual funds left will not be put into the troop account, but will be turned over to the beneficiary of the project for up keep of the project. REFERENCES BSA publications are frequently updated and the most current revision of these documents should be used for reference. This Blue Grass Council document will only be revised when newer versions of these references dictate a change in the information provided herein. While every effort will be made to disseminate any new Eagle policies and procedures information within the council through training, publications, the Internet, appropriate committees, and Roundtables, it is the individual Scouts and Scouters responsibility to follow the policies presented in the most current BSA publications.
