Standards, Benchmarks, Objectives

The 8-12 business education curriculum was reviewed during the 2019-2020 school year. Committee members at all levels reviewed the standards, benchmarks, and objectives from the Iowa Career and Technical Education Core Standards, the Iowa Core Standards for Employability Skills, and the National Standards from the National Business Education Association (NBEA). These objectives clearly articulate what we expect all students to know, understand and be able to do. Our new adoption of standards focuses on both soft skills and the content-specific skills of the business world.
