AC School Board decision on FFA pending

The Adams Central Board of Education is keeping its cards in hand for a little bit longer as it decides whether to implement an agricultural education program for the 2014-2015 school year, which officials estimate would cost the district between $70,000 and $120,000 in the program's first year.

Following discussion and presentations from state officials about the proposed program at its November meeting, the board heard testimony from more than a dozen community members and conducted a lengthy discussion on the ag program at its meeting Friday.

The board unanimously decided to postpone a final vote on the program to a special meeting later this month, pending additional information about accommodating the program in the district's budget.
