Employability Skills

The State of Indiana requires all graduating seniors to learn and demonstrate employability skills by using one of these learning experience options: 




The Patriot Expo is designed to meet the state graduation requirements for all Owen Valley students.  It is a five-phase program for which students are required to submit a proposal, write a research paper on a topic of their interest, create a product with the help of a mentor, create a portfolio of the entire process, and present the object to a board of teachers and community members for judging.

The Patriot Expo shows how the student has developed employability skills and met the learning experience requirement to demonstrate career readiness for graduation.
