Agriculture in the Classroom

Broome County's Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) program welcomes you to our program. We collaborate with school districts to create custom curricula that integrate agriculture into education while aligning with district goals and standards. Our curriculum covers various topics such as food, conservation, farming, and more, adaptable to grade levels. Lessons also align with language arts, math, science, and social studies to meet New York State and National Common Core Learning Standards. This program is supported by Cornell Cooperative Extension and serves 13 school districts in Broome, Cortland, and Tioga County, including the school districts: Chenango Forks, Chenango Valley, Deposit, Harpursville, Johnson City, Maine-Endwell, Marathon, Owego-Apalachin, Susquehanna Valley, Union Endicott, Vestal, Whitney Point, and Windsor. We have dedicated three educators for elementary education: Sarah Atwood, Nicole Walker, and Nicole Huston.
