Estacada School District Launches Agriculture Program

The Estacada School District is pleased to announce that Estacada High School and Estacada Middle School will be expanding their program offerings. Beginning next school year, EHS and EMS students will have the opportunity to participate in an Agriculture program. Types of classes that the program may include are Greenhouse Management, Forestry Tech, FFA Leadership, Landscape Design, and Animal Science. Actual class offerings will be based around the experience of the teacher that is hired. Our district prioritizes reflecting the values and vision of our community and of our students. Students and Estacada residents have been vocal in their support for this program.

Our district continues to strive to expand our opportunities in order to equip students with a diverse skill set that will allow them to thrive in a variety of industries. District leadership looks forward to seeing the impact this will have on our students, and is excited to engage the community in this new program. Estacada High School Principal Bill Blevins notes that “This program seems like a natural fit for our schools. We are hopeful that with the support of our community and students, this new offering will thrive and contribute to our students’ skill set, success, and employability for years to come.”

The district now begins the process of hiring a teacher for this role, and plans to utilize community feedback throughout this process. The program will divide a teacher between both Estacada High School and Estacada Middle School.
