I have attached a Program Review Guide to assist you in preparing for the 2012-13 Program of Work Reviews. As mentioned previously, the area teachers will be contacting the teachers in their program service areas regarding specific dates and times for evaluations.

It will be very important for each of you to have a well organized file or notebook of the material you are responsible for bringing. If you have specific questions regarding this documentation, please give me or any Area Teacher a call. As a general rule...if in doubt, put it in the notebook. Items in the guide listed in italics are records we have in our office. Items listed in bold and underlined are to be documented by you.

If you are a middle school teacher please note that the following are the only differences in a high school and middle school Program of Work:
  • Standard # 22 - Middle School Chapters are required to submit at least one Middle School Record Book rather than a Proficiency Application 
  • Standard #25 - Middle School Chapters are required to submit a Form I and at least one of the other choices rather than two. 
  • Standard #35 - Middle School Chapters do not need to have a State FFA Degree.

Thank you all in advance for your help in making this process as smooth as possible. It is our goal that these sessions provide you with the opportunity to share with us the great things happening in your program. As always, the ultimate goal is to use these as a guide for continued program improvement. Let me know if I can help or provide answers to any questions.

Thank you
