Welcome to Curriculum

  • The curriculum in the School District 271 reflects our district's interpretation and application of the Idaho Core standards as well as the Idaho Content Standards.  With these standards, teams of teachers with community input create rigorous expectations for student performance and describe the knowledge and abilities to progress through any course as well as the skills necessary to succeed in today's society.

    The guides presented are to be used as models for any classroom teacher.  When content, instruction, and local and state assessments are aligned, our district strongly believes that our curriculum is a powerful force that contributes to the success of student achievement.

    Here you may find course offerings as well as scope and sequence, grade level expectations, state and district standards, adopted textbooks, and other curriculum-related resources.

Curriculum and Assessment Plan

Idaho Content Standards

  • All students in Coeur d'Alene Public Schools will take coursework aligned with the Idaho Content Standards and measured through ongoing, embedded assessments. These standards are to be used as a minimum threshold by every school district in Idaho in order to establish some consistency in academic content statewide.

    In many cases, course content in Coeur d'Alene may be more rigorous than these state content standards. Idaho reviews and revises, when needed, all content standards on a six year review/adoption cycle.
