Agriculture Residency Program

Agriculture Experience Residency Program

As part of this three day residency we will be hosting a number of leaders in the Agriculture Industry to share their passions and knowledge with students. Along with speakers, students will take part in tours, hands-on work, games, hikes, discussions, and course work to earn high school credits. Our own Altario School Students will act as student leaders and camp among other students in the residency to help answer questions and share their passion for Agriculture and the rural way of life.

Our Intent

The purpose of this residency is multi-faceted:

Agriculture Experience Residency Assessment

Students will be given a number of assignments prior to, during, and after the agriculture experience residency to complete. Student work will be collected by our Agriculture Education Instructor and this course work will be used to assess them learning. Most course work will be submitted using Google Classroom (online pre-course work and work during residency.) Students will need to complete an Agriculture Project to return to their home school with to share their agriculture knowledge. Students will receive 4 courses through this 3 day residency which means 4 credits for each student. 

Special resources, facilities or equipment necessary

Students will need access to a computer prior to the residency to complete coursework as well as bring a computer to the residency trip for class working times. We will spend a large amount of time in our Agriculture Learning Center at our school. All trip accommodations, food, resources, and equipment is provided by the Altario Agriculture Residency program, as well as transportation during the residency. Transportation to and from the course start and end locations are the responsibility of the visiting school.
