State Exiting Standards, Version 1.0.
This paper contains proposed state exiting standards for the Idaho K-12 public school system. All schools are to deliver a core of instruction and advisement programs for each student. Students are to meet locally established standards (at a minimum, the state standards), which can be assessed by challenging examinations, demonstrations of achievement, and other appropriate tests and measures. To graduate from an Idaho high school, a student must demonstrate achievement in the core and other required subjects to include 42 semester credits, and meet exiting standards as assessed by an examination or other measure. The paper lists minimum and related core subjects and discusses guidance programs, special-education regulations, alternative secondary programs, testing, selection of curricular materials, communication skills, technology in the curriculum, work-force skills, basic values, safe environment and discipline, and citizenship. Subject areas targeted in the standards include: mathematics, economics, government/civics, United States history, science, language arts/communication, and health. Each standard topic starts with an introductory paragraph, followed by subtopics presented in tabular format (content standard, content knowledge and skills, and samples of applications). (RT)
