Iowa Core Curriculum

The Iowa Core Curriculum is a core set of content information for K-12 students, legislated by the state of Iowa as mandatory for all public school systems. The Iowa Core Curriculum identifies the essential skills and concepts all students need to know and apply to be successful beyond school. There are identified skills and concepts for literacy, math, science, social studies and 21st century skills (health literacy, financial literacy, technology literacy, and employability skills.)

Iowa Department of Education – Iowa Core Curriculum
Provides a copy of the Iowa Core Curriculum along with resources, background information and access to the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Mid-Iowa School Improvement Consortium (MISIC)
"MISIC is a consortium of districts that began by developing a core curriculum for its members in 1998. It was formed to provide support for school improvement efforts of its members and to create opportunities for its members to engage in collaborative projects. MISIC has worked since the adoption of the Iowa Core Curriculum to align its MISIC core with the Iowa Core. The curriculum alignment documents are found under the 'Member Documents' section. Staff will need to contact Jason Ellingson for the username and password."

Iowa Public Television (Science, Literacy and Math)

Provides copies of the ICN sessions explaining the focus for science, math, and literacy and the application of the Iowa Core Curriculum to special education students.

Planning Documents for the district
The Collins-Maxwel school district, like all public districts in Iowa, is required to have an Iowa Core implementation plan that explains how the district will meet the requirements of the Iowa Core. Below are two PDFs that demonstrate our planning: 1) The self-study document is a type of needs assessment that provides baseline data used to write the plan; and 2) Iowa Core implementation plan outlines the district's actions in ensuring all curriculum is learned by the students in grades K-12.
