SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience) Programs: are essential to the “learning by doing” philosophy of a total agricultural program. This program is developed through a cooperative effort between the student, parents and the instructor. It should be agricultural in nature; it should be a true learning experience that is supervised by the instructor. Record books are a required part of this class and will be used to track progress on the SAE.
FFA: The FFA is an important part of the total agriculture education program and is intracurricular by an act of congress. That means to have a total agriculture education program you need a FFA chapter. FFA membership and participation is beneficial for the success and enjoyment of students in the agriculture education program. Every student enrolled in agriculture education is expected to join FFA and become an active member.
LABS: The shop and school grounds are used as labs through out the year; you are expected to behave the same as if you were in the classroom. They are not a place for horseplay! People can get hurt if you do not pay attention and following safety instructions.
