Help Indiana kids who miss school for agricultural events.

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.
