Take our survey on Iowa's literacy standards
A survey is open through May 13 to Iowans who want to weigh on the state’s current literacy standards for students in kindergarten through the 12th grade.
Iowa’s academic standards are the subject of ongoing review as part of the Governor’s Executive Order 83. The literacy standards outline learning expectations for English-language arts and for literacy in history, social studies, science, and other technical subjects.
The review of literacy standards began in February, when a Literacy Standards Review Team was convened; the team is made up of education and business leaders. Team members decided to seek input from Iowans on the current literacy standards.
Public forums had been held throughout the state to gain public insight.
Feedback from the public forums and survey will be used to provide guidance to the review team, which is expected to submit a final recommendation to the State Board of Education later this year.
Take the survey now through May 13.
