The Idaho Core Standards represent a key piece of the recommendations of the Governor’s Task Force on Education Excellence currently being considered by the legislature. In order to help ensure the effective implementation of the standards proceeds smoothly, the Idahoans for Excellence in Education Coalition and the Idaho State Department of Education have partnered on a statewide awareness campaign about the Standards. The campaign will include online advertising, public service announcements, social media outreach and more.
The Idaho Education Association is one of 30 organizations that have come together in support of the Idaho Core Standards, which have been implemented to increase academic rigor so that students are more ready for college and/or career. Other Coalition members include the Idaho School Boards Association, the Idaho School Superintendents Association, the Idaho State Board of Education and Idaho Parents and Teachers Together.
