The Agricultural Education Program is an essential part of the Career and Technical Education Program at Dutchtown High School. The program has a very active FFA chapter with some awesome student leaders.
The Basic Agriscience Class is the foundation course in the Agriscience Program and all other courses in the Agriculture Food and Natural Resource Pathways. This course introduces students to major areas of scientific, agricultural production and research. The course presents problem solving lessons and introductory skills and knowledge in agricultural science and agriculture related technologies. Classroom and laboratory activities are supplemented through supervised agricultural experiences and leadership programs and activities. This course is the prerequisite for students in grades 9-10.
Animal Science and Biotechnology The Class is a course designed to introduce students to the scientific principles that underlie the breeding and production of agricultural animals and the production, processing and distribution of agricultural animal products. Classroom and laboratory activities are supplemented through supervised experiences and leadership programs and FFA activities.
Plant Science and Biotechnology The course is a basic component of the Agriscience Pathway. This course introduces students to the scientific theories, principles and practices involving Biotechnolog in the production and management of plants for food, fiber, conservation and ornamental use. Classroom and laboratory activities are supplemented through supervised agricultural experiences and FFA and leadership activities.
