Waukee students will learn 21st century skills to become a fluid and flexible member of the workforce, being able to anticipate, predict, grow, and move in an ever-changing world.
Careers teachers revamped their current standards, benchmarks, and objectives to align with the Iowa Core 21st Century Employability Skills. The new SBOs were presented to the school board in the spring of 2013.
The new SBOs include a course for sixth grade students called Leadership Development. This course focuses on the elementary to middle school transition and teaches skills such as goal setting, collaboration, and motivation.
