The vision for the Iowa Core is to ensure the success of each and every student by providing a world-class curriculum. The Iowa Core is designed to improve student achievement of all students, preparing them for the world of work and lifelong learning. It identifies the essential content and instruction that all students must experience.

Northwest AEA will not be holding Iowa Core Leadership Team sessions this year.  The instructional coach for each school will assist in implementation at the school level.  We also strongly encourage attendance at the Iowa Core Investigations and Deeper Investigations sessions. These sessions will allow teachers to develop a deeper understanding of the Iowa Core in Literacy and Math. See more at our website, including the Math and English training dates and registration.
