Time to Review the Standards
Standards in this subject area were last reviewed in 2013 and are now up for review and possible revision. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has a transparent and comprehensive process for reviewing and revising academic standards. For more information about the process, with links to the Notice of Intent to Review and the public-input survey, please go to CTE's Standards page.
Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR)
Wisconsin Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs (Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; Business and Information Technology; Family and Consumer Sciences; Health Science; Marketing, Management and Entrepreneurship; and Technology and Engineering) have a rich history and foundation of preparing young adults for the next steps in their lives—postsecondary education and the world of work. Through ties to business, industry and community, CTE programs provide perspectives and partnerships necessary to educate the entire student. Along with CTE’s relationships, the standards outlined in this document set a new direction for the knowledge and skills necessary for successful transition to postsecondary programs leading to and/or direct entry into high-wage, high-demand and highly skilled careers. When paired with the Common Core State Standards, Wisconsin students now have access to increasingly rigorous and relevant content to ensure college and career readiness.
