Washington CASE Institutes

The Washington FFA Foundation hosts two CASE  teacher training institutes in July at locations in Elma and Prosser. In addition to providing stipends for two program coordinators, the foundation also funded registration fees for ten teachers to participate in the institute.

In 2015, forty one Washington agricultural science teachers learned the best teaching practices to effectively implement new lab science curriculums in Animal Science and Natural Resources & Ecology. Teachers were required to attend 80 hours of instruction in order to be CASE certified.

Congratulations to the 41 teachers who received certification and thank you for taking time out of your summer for the benefit of agriculture education students in your high school.
