ANNUAL REPORTS OF YOUR PROGRAM – An annual report of your program is a great way to add credibility to your extended contract and to market your program with administrators, school board members, advisory council, and parents. When you have completed your 02-03 Annual Report of your Agricultural Education Program, please be sure to send a copy to your FCAE Field Advisor. The deadline date is September 30, 2003. You may want to just get it out of the way though and send it when it is completed. Emailed copies as an attachment are accepted as well. If you would like an outline and example of an annual report go to this link - If a username and password is asked, just use the same as you use for the teacher’s toolbox.
