  • The “Professional Learning Experience” will help connect technical skill development at the application level to authentic industry-related experiences for the individual student learner across all fields and pathways.  The goal for every Olathe District Student is to use their secondary experiences to further define their post-secondary plans.  Through involvement in one of Olathe’s Career & Technical Education programs, 21st Century Academies, or Olathe Advanced Technical Center Programs, we offer to qualified seniors a capstone Professional Learning Experience (PLE) to enhance skill development, attain a certification, license or degree and experience greater student success in the 21st century workforce.  For more information visit: KSDE PLE Fact Sheet
