WHY AG ED?
Agriculture education has been an integral part of public education for over 100 years as the result of an act of legislation passed by Congress. The Smith-Hughes act laid the groundwork for providing career and technical education to America's students. Today, nearly 800,000 students participate in agriculture education programs in all 50 states and three US territories.
FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
The dynamic blend of classroom instruction, supervised independent experiences, and FFA aim to educate the whole person. While each component can stand alone, our students are best served when they are afforded the opportunity to participate in all facets of the program.
As we begin to transition from the existing Industrial/Technical Arts program to an Agriculture Education program over the course of the next year, we will pursue a chapter charter from the National FFA Organization. Any student enrolled in any agriculture course will be eligible for participation in FFA.
