COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Students will identify career and entrepreneurial opportunities in the field of horticulture as they develop technical skills in the management and production of horticultural plants. The greenhouse is used to provide hands-on experience as students learn to classify plants, manage the horticultural production environment, propagate plants, create designs and landscapes using plants, and describe the processes of fruit, nut, and vegetable production.

This course will count towards eligibility to be involved with Arlington FFA.

 

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

  1. A positive attitude
  2. Pen or pencil
  3. Spiral notebook
  4. Folder or 3-ring binder

 

GRADE DETERMINATION:

Classroom and lab work: x1

Late Work:

Students will have until the next class day to turn in any late assignments (example: an assignment

that is due 2nd period is not turned in; the student will have until the next A Day to turn it in with a 30% penalty). If an assignment is not turned in after this 2-day window, the assignment will not be accepted and will be counted as a 0.

 

 

 

Make-up Work:

All students shall be allowed to make up work when they are absent from class. Two school days per one day absent from class shall be granted to complete all missed assignments. If class is missed because of a medical/family emergency or extracurricular activities, you must take the initiative to get information about assignments missed.

Retake policy:

The AISD Ag Science department will not allow retakes on any assignments or examinations. Students are expected to appropriately prepare for assessments and complete assignments per class requirements the first time.

 

Academic Integrity:

Cheating will NOT be tolerated! Students participating in academic dishonesty will immediately

receive a zero for the assignment.

 

CLASSROOM RULES:

  1. Students are expected to maintain a professional attitude and conduct while in class and on campus
  2. Be Ready (have materials ready to work before the tardy bell rings)
  3. Be Respectful (treat others and their belongings better than you want to be treated)
  4. Be Responsible (take ownership of your actions)
  5. Follow directions the first time & work during all work times
  6. No sunflower seeds, tobacco products or anything that resembles these

  11. Students will be expected to follow AISD dress code policy and have IDs visible at all times

 

PROFESSIONALISM:

This class is designed for two distinct purposes: to teach students basic agricultural principles and

practices, as well as prepare them for the “real world.” In this perspective, it is paramount that

students understand the importance of professionalism in the classroom and work place. Students enrolled in this course will be instructed in professionalism and manners throughout the year. Students are expected to follow AISD dress code policy and have IDs visible at ALL TIMES when on any AISD campus. There will also be times (i.e. during labs and when working with animals) when students will be required to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.

 

CONSEQUENCES:

  1. Written/verbal warning
  2. Email/phone call to parents
  3. Referral to office at student’s home campus
  4. Major infraction (for example fighting or destruction of property) will result in an immediate referral and removal from the Agricultural Science Center.

 

* All other matters will be handled according to the student handbook.
