What is a Supervised Agricultural Experience?
A Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) can be defined as a hands-on student developed project that provides students with real world agricultural experiences under the supervision of their agriculture instructor.
Why are SAE's important?
This type of experiential learning offers students an array of benefits such as career exploration, developing job and decision-making skills, record keeping, and earning money. Students get the opportunity to apply the content they learned in their Agricultural Education courses to a real world experience in various agricultural fields. All BV agriculture students also receive 15% of their grade for ag class by successfully planning and conducting their SAE projects as well as keeping accurate records for their SAE projects.
What are the options?
* Every student must have at least 2 SAE projects: one home/community improvement project per year totaling at least 10 hours of work and at least one additional SAE project from any of the above categories.
AET Online Record Keeping
All students will use the AET online record keeping system to maintain accurate records of their SAE projects. Using the AET system is essential for students to track their progress with their SAE, apply for SAE related awards, apply for FFA degrees, and earn the SAE portion of their grade for ag class. Mrs. Gregory will be checking each student's records on AET at least once every nine weeks to assess their progress.
FFA State/American Degree and Proficiency Award Applications
I would recommend that you enter all SAE records (expenses, income, hours worked, etc), CDE participation, community service hours, etc into AET before beginning your application process. AET automatically transfers all of your above mentioned records into your applications.
