Elementary Agricultural Education Pilot Program SB330      
Governor Deal signed SB 330 during the 90th Ga FFA Convention in 2018.  The Georgia Elementary Agricultural Education Pilot Program started during the 2019-2020 school year with 25 schools and completed the pilot program in 2021-2022 in 31 elementary schools. Elementary Ag Ed  Curriculum Standards were approved at the June 2019 State Board of Education meeting.

The Georgia Professional Standards Commission held two special task force committees, in June 2018 and in March 2022, to look at the Agricultural Education Certification options for this new program.  The current GaPSC certification guidelines for EAE teachers is posted online.  The program is based on the three component model of agricultural education with the exception that FFA is not offered in elementary school, so the program includes Classroom/Lab Instruction, Experiential Learning and Leadership Development. 

Governor Kemp signed HB1303 in April 2022 which removed the "pilot program" status officially made Elementary Agricultural Education a permanent option for all elementary schools in Georgia.
