Students enrolled in an Agriculture course are required to maintain an active Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE), which is the career component of Agriculture Education, and should be an extension of what is learned in class.
Class time will be given to update and maintain SAE's using the Agriculture Experience Tracker (AET) website.
Please see below for an exerpt from the National FFA Organization's webpage which explains what SAE's are and why they are essential to a complete Agriculture program. For more information, click here.
"An agricultural education program is made up of three integrated parts: classroom instruction, FFA and a supervised agricultural experience (SAE).
The SAE is a required component of a total agricultural education program and intended for every student. Through their involvement in the SAE program, students are able to consider multiple careers and occupations, learn expected workplace behavior, develop specific skills within an industry, and are given opportunities to apply academic and occupational skills in the workplace or a simulated workplace environment. Through these strategies, students learn how to apply what they are learning in the classroom as they prepare to transition into the world of college and career opportunities."
