Advisory Committee Tools      
Advisory committees are intended to give the program instructor and the local administration input dealing with the direction of the program. They can help set the mission and goals of a program and help ensure the program is viable.

Raffles are popular money making tools for many organizations in Texas, including FFA Chapters and related entities. Under Texas law, a “raffle” consists of the awarding of one or more prizes by chance at a single occasion among a single pool or group of persons. 

Trips & Equipment      
We are finding schools that have changed their rules dealing with out-of-state trips and the use of school equipment on those trips. Make sure you understand your school district’s rules dealing with out-of-state trips.

School Email      
School computers and individual school emails are like any other school property. The use of them is for school activities and performing your day-to-day duties as a teacher in that school district.
