Great school systems have clear and rigorous expectations, or standards, that educators help all students reach. In Iowa, those standards are known as the Iowa Core. The Iowa Core academic standards describe what students should know and be able to do from kindergarten through 12th grade in math, science, English language arts and social studies. In addition to the content standards, the Iowa Core also defines 21st century skills goals and universal constructs for all students that are critical for success for college, career and citizenry.

The Iowa Core is a set of common expectations, not a curriculum. Decisions about how to design Lewis Central’s scope and sequence is in the hands of our local teachers, administrators and school board. Iowa Core implementation in Lewis Central is ongoing and is fully integrated with both our curriculum review and Professional Learning Community (PLC) process. The Iowa Core sets appropriate academic expectations for all students, and reflects the real-world knowledge and skills students need to graduate from Lewis Central High School fully prepared for college or career.

For more information about the Iowa Core Curriculum, including the grade level standards and parent guides, please visit the Iowa Core Parent Resources page developed by the Iowa Department of Education.
