Idaho Content Standards
All students graduating from Idaho public high schools must meet state adopted content standards. These standards are to be used as a minimum threshold by every school district in the state in order to establish some consistency in academic content statewide.
Each school district may set standards more rigorous than these state content standards, but no district shall use any standards less rigorous than those set forth in IDAPA 08.02.03.102, page 11. It is still up to each local school district to adopt its own curriculum (how the standards are taught) to meet these standards. Idaho reviews and revises, when needed, all content standards on a six year review/adoption cycle.
Idaho Content Standards Review
The 2020-2021 review of English Language Arts/Literacy, Math and Science will begin in June 2020 with final recommendations to the legislature in 2022. The public is encouraged to follow the process and provide feedback along the way.
