Fort Dodge Community School District is committed to transforming our schools from "schools of the past" to schools of the 21st Century. By implementing the mandated Iowa Core, our schools will transform into schools that are rigorous and engaging to students.
This link takes you to the page on Iowa Department of Education website that displays the Iowa Core Standards for Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills. The Iowa Core Standards in Literacy and Mathematics are completely aligned with the Common Core State Standards adopted by 46 States across the country. (Common Core State Standards have not been implemented in Science, Social Studies and 21st Century Skills).
