Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Provides that a school district that offers a secondary agricultural education program that is eligible for State and federal funding must ensure that, at a minimum, the following are available to its secondary agricultural education students: (1) an instructional sequence of courses approved by the State Board of Education; (2) a State and nationally affiliated FFA chapter that is integral to instruction and is not treated as an extracurricular activity; and (3) a mechanism for ensuring the involvement of all secondary agricultural education students in formal, supervised, agricultural-experience activities and programs.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the FFA chapter must not be treated solely as an extracurricular activity (instead of requiring that it not be treated as an extracurricular activity).

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that a school district that offers a secondary agricultural education program that is approved (instead of that is eligible) for State and federal funding must ensure that certain components are available to its secondary agricultural education students. Provides that nothing in the Section concerning agricultural education may prevent those secondary agricultural education programs that are in operation before the effective date of the amendatory Act and that do not have an active State and nationally affiliated FFA chapter from continuing to operate or from continuing to receive funding from the State Board of Education.
