Website for "Vision 2030"
A NEW website for "Vision2030" has been created and the site address is www.CATAVision2030.org. Please save the link as one of your "favorites" as it will serve as the primary information/resource hub pertaining to Vision 2030.
Vision 2030 - Agriscience Education
The Vision 2030 Committee has worked hard to put Agriscience education at the forefront of the NGSS and Common Core movements. As part of this evolution in agricultural education, materials have been created that can be infused into traditional agriculture courses as well as matching the new UC-approved lab science coursework. Teachers interested in using materials developed for the new Agriscience courses can access them by going to Google Drive.
