Indiana General Assembly

Help Indiana kids who miss school for agricultural events.

    1. Petition by

      Indiana Association of Fairs

We're asking for legislation that ensures that Indiana students who participate in 4-H or FFA don't get unexcused absences on their records when they attend the Indiana State Fair and other agricultural activities.

Indiana school districts continue to transition from a traditional agrarian calendar schedule to the balanced calendar schedule. As a result, school is often in session during the Indiana State Fair and other events, causing conflicts for 4-H and FFA members who want to attend these educational experiences. We ask the Governor and Indiana General Assembly to address the inconsistencies in giving students excused absences for these events.

To:
Indiana General Assembly
Help Indiana kids who miss school for agricultural events.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I was in FFA in high school and It greatly benefitted me and not only prepared me for my future but through FFA I found my dream college and life's calling. If I had not been able to attend FFA due to not being excused from school I probably would never have gone to college or discovered my dream job.

      I have extended family that is directly affected by this. Also, I went to a very rural school system that is/has been impacted by stuff like this.

      This is important to me because i was in 4-H and FFA and i know there was a few times where I was considered unexcused due to events related to 4-H and FFA.
