Personal Life Skills & Consumer Life Skills
The PLS/ CLS courses are both required for LKSD high school graduation. While they can be to any student in grades 9- 12, both courses deal with grown-up, real world life topics, and therefore have more relevance to upper grade level students.
PLS (0.5 credits) helps students learn how to live on their own as an adult while focusing on managing their relationships and situations, caring for themselves, and their families as a parent.
CLS (0.5 credits) helps students learn how to be fiscally savvy. Emphasis in this course is placed on management and prioritization, personal finance, budgeting and career planning.
The purpose of both PLS/ CLS is to equip students with knowledge and understanding to help them make good decisions that will enrich their lives after graduation.
