602.17 - Career Education

Preparing students for careers is one goal of Linn-Mar’s education program. Career education will be written into the education program for grades K-12. Career education will include, but not be limited to, awareness of self in relation to others and the needs of society, exploration of employment opportunities, experiences in personal decision-making, and experiences of integrating work values and work skills into their lives.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent [or designee] to assist licensed employees in finding ways to provide career education in the education program. Special attention should be given to courses of a vocational education nature. The board, in its review of the curriculum, will review the means in which career education is combined with other instructional programs.
