It introduces students to the many opportunities to learn and develop real-world skills outside of the classroom and beyond the school day. This guide will provide students and parents: 

  • Clarity about what an SAE is and how it works
  • A roadmap to get on the correct SAE path
  • An understanding of how an SAE provides Real Learning for a Real Future!

It is meant to supplement the SAE for All Student Guide and provide teachers practical guidance, tools and examples to do the following:

  • Help students understand what an SAE is, the value it provides and how to get started
  • Ensure all students enrolled in agricultural education courses have an SAE
  • Connect SAE to school priorities
  • Integrate SAE into classroom grading system

In these guides, you will find answers to the most pressing questions for providing high-quality SAEs to all students.
