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.
The 2020-2021 English Language Arts/Literacy, Math, and Science content standards review began in June 2020 with final recommendations made to the legislature in 2022. HB 716 was passed and signed into law adopting the new standards effective July 1, 2022. Standards in effect until June 30, 2022, for English Language Arts/Literacy, Math, and Science are provided below.
