Real World Learning 

Real World Learning is any and all in-class or extracurricular experiences and engagement for students that facilitates learning about industry expectations, careers, professionalism, and executive functioning skills. While broad in basic definition, the focus is on experiences that relate academic content to real-life application, providing students the connectivity of concepts between in-class learning and post-educational life expectations.  

The intent of embedding Real World Learning throughout multiple facets of learning is to reflect the district's Portrait of a Lakota Graduate, preparing students for any and all challenges that they may face on their post-high school journey toward Enrollment, Enlistment, Employment, or Entrepreneurship. 

Lakota has multiple different initiatives driving Real World Learning, with a large portion of district-wide engagement being co-curricular experiences for students.
