 Public input sought on science standards through survey
 

The Iowa Department of Education is seeking input from Iowans on a preliminary proposal to update Iowa’s science standards. An online survey is now available to get public feedback on the Next Generation Science Standards. (This is the name of science standards developed by 26 states, including Iowa, that all states can consider adopting and adapting to meet their needs.)

Academic standards represent expectations for what students should know and be able to do from kindergarten through high school. Iowa’s academic standards are being reviewed, starting with science, as part of Executive Order 83.

“We want to improve our state standards, and we also want to make sure they are the right fit for Iowa,” Department of Education Director Brad Buck said. “That’s why public input is such a critical part of this review process.”

Feedback from this survey will be used to provide guidance to the science standards review team, which is expected to submit a final recommendation regarding science standards to the State Board of Education later this year.

Buck said fine-tuning Iowa’s science standards is especially critical as the state works to bolster its commitment to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education so that students can compete for a growing number of STEM-related jobs.

The survey will be open through Friday, Feb. 27. To take the survey go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VW6SHDY?c=Iowa_Science_Survey more


 LMHS Course Registration Process
 

Our students have started the process of selecting courses for the 2015-2016 school year at Linn-Mar High School. Here's how it works...

Linn-Mar's 8th grade students have received their course registration materials at Oak Ridge or Excelsior Middle Schools. The 9/10 counselors have visited both middle schools, distributed the registration material and have talked to the 8th grade students about the registration process. Parents should have already received registration material through their student.

At LMHS, all initial course selection will be online using PowerSchool. Students will receive course registration instructions during a Homeroom session on January 22, 2015. Online registration will take place from Thursday, January 22, through Friday, February 6, at 3:45 p.m.

Following course registration, the Master Schedule of courses is developed. This schedule is primarily based upon student course requests. Every effort is made to fulfill student course requests. Student schedules will be given out the first week in May. Schedule changes can be made during the month of May with guidance counselors.
