What is S.A.G.E.?
(Sustainable Agriculture and Green Energies)
 
Introduction to Agriscience [Introduction to Agricultural Science] is an introductory, year-long course that provides students with the foundational knowledge they need to succeed within the agricultural industry. Students are introduced to all seven of the primary agricultural pathways: Animal Systems, Plant Systems, Food Products & Processing Systems, Natural Resource Systems, Environmental Systems, and Agricultural Business Systems, in addition to the National FFA Organization (formerly known as the Future Farmers of America). By exploring each of the agricultural pathways, every student is given the opportunity to make informed choices about how they would like to specialize their agricultural education. Students can expect to work collaboratively with their classmates in a hands on setting to explore agriculture.

ATTENDANCE POLICY
 
In order to remain in good standing, our students must maintain 90% attendance in all classes.  If you receive an automated absence call, it reflects an absence recorded in Power School, as the system only initiates calls for recorded absences in one or more classes.  We do not make absence calls home for students arriving tardy to class.  If you believe your student's attendance has been recorded incorrectly, please feel free to call our office or your student's family teacher for details about the absence. To gain access to your student's attendance in Power School, please contact the office or your family teacher for instructions on how to do so.
