Calallen FFA Agricultural Science Introduction
The officers of the Calallen FFA Chapter welcome you to the Calallen FFA and the Agricultural Science Department. The Calallen FFA Chapter had an outstanding year in 2012-2013 and will strive to have an even better year in 2013-2014. In keeping with this idea, a few guidelines have been set up for all FFA members and students to follow. First and foremost, FFA membership is not required, but is highly encouraged.
The chapter has one meeting per month, which will be on the third Monday or as needed. These meetings are mandatory for you to attend. You must attend 3 meeting during the Fall semester in order to participate in the County Stock Show. If you miss a meeting, you must submit a letter to the Chapter President stating why the meeting was missed. If two consecutive meetings are missed, without good cause, the member will be removed from the membership roster and will lose all privileges of membership.
Supervised Agricultural Experience Program:
It is hands-on, real-life agricultural career preparation experiences tied to agricultural science curriculum, student aptitudes, interests and career and educational goals and to the agricultural industry. It ties together the entire agricultural education experience. Each agricultural education student will have an SAE that is documented in an approved record book.

Agricultural Mechanics classes will require a long-sleeve shirt, non-frayed pants and closed toe shoes.

Students are required to follow the guidelines set forth in the school student handbook and the FFA Manual. You are expected to be above average in citizenship. The agricultural science instructors reserve the right to decide which students will make approve field trips, leadership and judging contests, conventions, and stock shows.
