File Attachment:
Summary: Heritage High School’s Agriculture advisor, Jeremiah Perotti, is requesting Board approval for the Heritage High School's Future Farmers of America (FFA) students to attend the 91st Annual State Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California, April 26-29, 2019.

The purpose of this trip is to receive the FFA Charter from the State Association and provide FFA members the opportunity to expand leadership skills by attending leadership workshops and activities. Students will represent Heritage High School on the convention floor, provide information to voting delegates on issues that will directly affect the members, and cast votes for the 2018-2019 state FFA officers.

In addition, it is necessary for the Heritage Chapter of FFA to be represented by two voting delegates at the convention if they are to remain in good standing with the state association. By being represented, they will be able to continue participating in FFA sponsored activities, be eligible for agriculture incentives and specialized grants, as well as give students the ability to run for regional and state FFA offices.

This is an overnight field trip of 3 nights, with 28 students, and 4 adult chaperones. Transportation will be provided via District and site vehicles. The estimated cost is $367 per person.
Funding: The cost for this item is included in the 2018-19 operating budget funded through HHS FFA ASB funds and Associated Student Body (ASB) funds.
Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board of Trustees approve the overnight field trip for Heritage High School's Future Farmers of America students to attend the 91st Annual FFA State Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California, April 26-29, 2019.
