The Academics department at the Idaho State Department of Education helps define what students should know and be able to do in their K-12 careers. The knowledge students gain in school will help them be ready for the world that awaits them beyond high school. This department houses content standards and review, curricular resources review, and professional learning for teachers such as the Idaho Coaching Network, i-STEM (Idaho Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and Discovery Learning. In addition to professional learning, there are innovative programs for students such as the Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars (ISAS) and the Microsoft Academy.
