Families of middle and high school students have a chance to learn more about Real World Learning opportunities in the Shawnee Mission School District.
AP, IB, CN, Excel in CTE, oh my! Besides courses based in our high schools, Johnson County Community College has hundreds of credit classes which are free to high school students. Learn more about all the options available to students, including on working towards an associate degree while still in high school. High School Counselors will be participating in this discussion.
Learn about the importance of connecting to professionals and business partners in the roles of mentors and coaches. “Leaving to Learn” or internship opportunities allow students to hone workplace skills and gain resume-worthy experiences in various career fields. Hear from current and former students about their experiences.
The Shawnee Mission School District, along with 44 other school districts in the Kanas City region, is partnering with the Kauffman Foundation to provide Real World Learning experiences for our students. The goal of Real World Learning is to better prepare our students for college and careers. Our goal is for every student to graduate with at least one Market Value Asset (MVA).
