  Adding new students to IL AgEd and Creating AET Accounts: Process Change  
  Lucas Allen  1/14/2022 11:44:00 AM  

Happy Friday, Ag teacher friends! 

I want to share some news that we received over the holiday break regarding adding new students to AET accounts.

Due to web server changes (that were out of our control), we were notified that our website is no longer able to push data to AET after entry into the IL AgEd system.  This means that you now have to "opt in" to create student accounts in the AET platform. 

What has not changed: 
You will still first enter students into the IL AgEd platform, submit FFA membership through IL AgEd, and that data will automatically push to National FFA.  If you entered students before 12/25/2021, then you do not need to do anything. This only applies to students just joining your courses after the New Year. There will still be no fee to you for AET; the AgEd line item will still provide the state subscription.

What has changed: 
For any new students (who did not already have an AET account as of 12/25/21) you must create an AET account for that student. You have two choices in how you do this- you can either manually create student accounts directly within AET, or you can import their information directly from National FFA. The 2nd method is our recommended method as it prevents creating duplicate accounts- but you would have to wait until IL FFA Center has approved your roster and submitted it to National FFA before you can import the FFA Member data.

I created a "how-to" guide to walk you through the steps- you can also find it on the Educator Resources page (right side) and attached to this message. Feel free to contact your FCAE Program Advisor or me if you have any questions.
