LUBBOCK, Texas (April 30, 2015) – CEV Multimedia, a leading producer of Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum resources, announced today that the Texas Education Agency has added the Principles & Elements of Floral Design course to its state-approved curriculum. The course will be offered through iCEV, an online platform that produces and delivers comprehensive educational content to students and teachers.
As part of the Proclamation 2015–Fine Arts Instructional Materials review, school districts in Texas can now choose to integrate Principles & Elements of Floral Design into their curriculum. The course fully correlates to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) while counting as a fine arts credit. Additionally, users will have access to 18 agricultural science courses, all aligned to state standards.
Students enrolled in the course also have the opportunity to earn the Principles of Floral Design Certification, endorsed by the Benz School of Floral Design at Texas A&M University. The certification is comprised of 13 lessons that address key components of the floral design, including the history of floral design, flower identification, principles and elements of design, and flower business management.
“We’re pleased to provide quality CTE resources and training opportunities to school districts in Texas,” said Dusty Moore, iCEV President. “By adding the Principles & Elements of Floral Design coursework and certification into the Texas state-approved curriculum, we’re ensuring students have access to solutions that align to their career goals and personal interests.”
