A fee may be required in these courses

Animal Science 1 - Course #8201 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade10-12 | 1.0 Credits
Students will be exposed to a wide range of scientific principles, such as genetics, anatomy, physiology, nutrition, disease, pests and management practices. The scientific processes of observation, measurement, hypothesizing, data gathering, interpretation, analysis and application are stressed. Career opportunities and educational preparation are examined. Learning activities are varied. Classroom, laboratory and field experiences emphasized. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Animal Science 2 - Course #8203 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 11, 12 | 1.0 Credits
Prerequisite Animal Science 1
Students will be introduced to equine science, poultry science, and production management. They will be exposed to the management practices associated with the handling of animal waste, livestock breeding and genetics, and the importance of anatomy and physiology in animal management practices. They will also be introduced to the practices associated with small animal care. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Biology-Agricultural Science (Foundation/Core) - Course #8207 | Credit (CTE, BS) | Grade 10-12 | 1.0 Credits
This course covers biology with an agricultural emphasis. Students learn about the structure of cells, how genetic information is passed on, biological diversity, the process of evolution, and how organisms interact with their environment. Students learn how to apply this information in plants and animals through laboratory activities. Students also explore recent advances in biotechnology (genetics, embryos, etc.) that are being used in agriculture and other biology related sciences. Students receive one credit of biological science. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Equine Science - Course #8214 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 11, 12 | 1.0 Credits
Students will develop an understanding of the following equine science concepts: basic equine terminology, early and modern equine history, career options, parts of equine tack, common health issues and number of foot falls and leg sequence at common gaits. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Floriculture and Greenhouse Management - Course #8206 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 10-12 | 1.0 Credits
This course is designed to prepare individuals to produce, process, and market a variety of plants, shrubs, and trees used principally for ornamental, recreational, and aesthetic purposes. This course includes instruction in greenhouse operations as well as the methods used to establish, maintain, and manage horticulture. This course also includes instruction related to the machinery and equipment necessary for each horticultural enterprise. Instruction in agricultural leadership as well as field and laboratory application of course concepts is an important part of the course. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Floriculture - Course #8208 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
Students will be exposed to greenhouse operations and management practices that will prepare the students to produce commercial plant species in a controlled environment and to manage commercial and experimental greenhouse operations. Curriculum emphasis is floriculture studies. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Greenhouse Management - Course #8209 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
Students will be exposed to greenhouse operations and management practices that will prepare the students to produce commercial plant species in a controlled environment and to manage commercial and experimental greenhouse operations. Curriculum emphasis is greenhouse management. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course. Plant and Soil

Science and Technology 1 - Course #8210 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 11, 12 | 1.0 Credits
An instructional course that emphasizes a pragmatic approach to scientific principles in plant and soil science and technology utilizing available classroom, greenhouse, land-laboratories, and commercial operations to enhance learning. Participation in the FFA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Plant and Soil Science and Technology 2 - Course #8211 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 11, 12 | 1.0 Credits
Students will develop knowledge and skills in advanced areas of plant and soil science, including range resource management. The instruction will also include the importance of biotechnology in crop production. Students will also learn to identify common weeds, diseases, and insect pests.
