Real World Learning
KCPS uses a variety of programs to equip students with career experiences. These programs fall under the umbrella of “Real World Learning.”
The ultimate goal of the Real World Learning initiative is that every student will attain a “Market Value Asset” before they graduate from high school. These assets can include work and internship experiences, college credit, entrepreneurial experiences, or industry-recognized credentials. Since the Real World Learning initiative was launched in 2019, Ms. Everett and her colleagues have collaborated to tie together various existing programs, launch new efforts, and make sure that students, families and staff are aware of these opportunities.
