Transcript of Indiana Agriculture Education Standards and Pathways

Indiana Agriculture Pathways 2012 How does this effect you as a teacher? Beginning 2012-2013
All teachers must be evaluated annually
All courses must have defined standards
Some RISE based teacher evaluations are based upon course standards
Beginning 2013-2014, All schools must:
Adopt pathways
Use revised courses
Student enrollment and completion of pathways will affect Perkins Funding to CTE Districts Speaking of Perkins Funding How does funding work? There are 2 types of funding for Career and Technical Education
Federal Perkins Funding
State CTE Funding

State Funding
Based on High Wage/ High Demand Data
Ranges from $250-$450 per student per course
Updated annually
Roughly $95 million annually spent by state to local schools

Federal Perkins Funding
Based on Population Data
Lots of paperwork
Regulatory standards/ indicators must be met
Roughly $14 million annually given by Feds to Indiana CTE Districts (through DOE)
These dollars may or may not be seen by the local schools/ programs Clusters, Pathways, and Frameworks
Oh My! Where would you rather spend your summer? Option 1 Or Option 2 If you chose Option 1
There may still be time to change your major

If you chose Option 2
Summer SAE might be just for you Summer SAE Often teachers choose to teach SAE as a summer school class
This strengthens students' SAEs
Builds community relations
Helps extend the Ag teacher's contract into the summer
Permission to teach a summer school class must be given by your administration
Summer school class costs are reimbursed to schools if requested
There is a slight risk involved in offering summer school
There are some requirements
School district must average 15 students per class
Must meet the standards of the course
More information and guidelines are available at
http://www.doe.in.gov/achievement/career-education/agricultural-education First Indiana had Clusters
16 Career clusters
Then Indiana renamed them Pathways
Pathways were developed for all career clusters at the national level
Indiana Ag teachers and stakeholders created 9 pathways
The pathway project was molded by Dr. Bennett to fit his vision of CTE in 2011
Now there are 3 Indiana Agriculture Pathways
Next we follow the Yellow Brick Pathway to the Standards What am I supposed to teach in these Pathways? Couse Frameworks Ag teachers, post secondary, and business and industry have reviewed and edited all the Agriculture course frameworks
These frameworks include the standards for the content as well as the literacy standards
Beyond teaching your content area, you are to incorporate common core literacy standards into all your courses
Honestly, you should be doing this already
Let's take a look at one example New Day...New Programs Agriculture Education Continues to Grow Schools continue to see the value in Ag Ed This year 3 programs openned in Indianapolis
All happenned due to administrative and community support
The key to opening a new program is to get the school administration to buy into the idea
Without administrative support a new program is not possible
Once the administration is on board, then contact the DOE and Purdue
