State and local leaders from business, higher education and the K-12 education community will discuss higher standards for K-12 education
Idaho Core Standards are higher standards in math and English language arts that will prepare every Idaho student for the future. States took the lead to develop new academic standards that are rigorous, more in-depth, and comparable with other countries.
Blaine County schools have been preparing for the Idaho Core Standards for several years; this fall teachers began teaching to the higher standards in math and English language arts. A new assessment of the standards will begin this spring with a field test.
The panel consists of:
Rod Gramer, CEO of Idaho Business for Education
Jenny Emery Davidson, PhD, Director of the Blaine Center for the College of Southern Idaho
Evelyn Johnson, Executive Director of the Lee Pesky Learning Center
Angie Martinez, Blaine County School District Director of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning
Darlene Dyer, English language arts teacher at Wood River High School
Kathy Baker, Blaine County School Board Trustee.
The panel will be moderated by Cynthia Dillon, Executive Director of the Community Library and Heather Crocker, Director of Communication, Blaine County School District.
