ACHS Career Ready, Industry Certified Agriculture Students Featured In Nationwide Publication Career Ready and Industry Certified Ag Students at ACHS

At Adair County High School, student certifications have become a defining factor when classifying students as career-ready. By implementing the industry certification program powered by iCEV, Randy Rexroat and Kirby Hancock, Agriculture Educators at Adair County High School in Columbia, Kentucky, are filling a major gap in their career-readiness goals.

“We were lacking an accurate guide for instruction to prepare students for prior assessments,” Hancock said. “However, the lessons, videos, activities and quizzes within iCEV do a really good job preparing students for the final certification exam.”

Through the iCEV platform, students have the opportunity to earn certifications such as the Bayer CropScience Plant Science Certification, the Elanco Fundamentals of Animal Science Certification and the American Meat Science Association’s Food Safety and Science Certification. All three certifications are state-approved and meet the requirement for career-readiness. Additionally, students can earn the certifications while they complete their regular coursework and gain concrete, evidenced skills to include on their résumé

Public Announcement:

Adair County High School will continue offering extended school services for the remainder of year. Students will be able to attend at their own request or upon a parent or teacher recommendation.  If a student wishes to attend he/she must see Mrs. Pierce in room 149a prior to attending.  This service is offered for students who are at risk of failing, who have been absent and need instruction on missed content, or who need additional instruction to grasp the content presented in the classroom.  We ask that you encourage your children to speak to their teachers prior to the tutoring sessions, so they will be prepared with the materials that will be needed for the instruction in these sessions.  The ESS Program supports the common goal of helping our children be successful.
