Iowa Core

 Signed into law in 2008, the Iowa Core was originally called a curriculum, but is not a set of courses or specific classroom instruction like a traditional curriculum. What the Iowa Core does is identifies essential skills and concepts that kindergarten through 12th grade students must learn in literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and 21st century skills. In addition, it offers professional development for teachers to assist them in enhancing instruction. The Iowa Core provides greater detail to the state's standards, which were approved in 2007 for No Child Left Behind accountability in reading, math, and science. All Iowa school districts and accredited nonpublic schools are required to implement the Iowa Core by 2014-2015.
