Implementing the Employability Standards

Schools are implementing Indiana’s Employability Skills Standards during the 2019-2020 school year. Integrating these standards into the daily life of students in your school system helps prepare them for the needs and demands of the ever-changing workforce. The standards address four key areas: Mindsets, Work Ethic, Learning Strategies, and Social and Emotional Skills.

The Office of Innovation released an implementation guide for Employability Skills Standards. The guide provides some ideas to help you plan district, school, and classroom-based strategies for infusing employability skills into your lessons for the students in your community.
