Plant Systems Program of Study with Complementary Course Standards (valid beginning 2023-24 school year)
The Plant Systems program provides students with the principles of plant science, ornamental horticulture, floriculture, landscape design, and greenhouse management. Areas of study include safety practices, plant anatomy and physiology, plant identification, plant selection and care, propagation, growing media, nutrition, integrated pest management, plant technologies, growing greenhouse crops, greenhouse business concepts, careers, and leadership development.
These Standards have been revised to include standards for complementary course(s) and introduce course sequencing after each Performance Indicator which was formerly shown in the Curriculum Frameworks.
The Supplemental Program Resources Document combines information originally found in the Program of Study and Equipment List Documents as well as the Crosswalks that were previously listed at the end of each set of program standards.
