Indianola District and Curriculum
Students in the Indianola area attend Indianola Community Schools. Students learn through Iowa Core Curriculum – a student-based approach used for implementing high academic expectations aligned with Common Core State Standards for all students at each grade level in core subject areas. Elementary grades introduce new skills and ideas, helping K-6 students gain experience and master concepts, to then build on as they develop through the grades.
We currently cover the following Indianola-area school district: Indianola Community Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Indianola District Curriculum
Teaching and learning in the junior high grades centers on the educational needs of adolescents as they transition between elementary school and high school. The work becomes more analytic and students are introduced to more complex texts, as well as higher order topics in algebra and geometry. High school years are an opportunity for students to take courses and electives specific to their potential college and career interests, developing necessary skills for the workforce.
Classroom instruction involves research – based strategies of essential concepts and skills, strategies for each grade level that are specific to the needs of students at that level. Assessments measure student achievement on mastering the standards expected at each grade level. From the assessments, teachers and parents are able to determine the progress of students and areas in need of improvement.

Chalk Talk: Taking Responsibility of Technological Devices
As technology is implemented more in the classroom, students are expected to take responsibility for iPads, clickers or laptops handed out or assigned to them. In many middle and high school grades, students are given the devices at the beginning of the year and don’t hand them back in until the end. Whether daily or year-long, students are responsible for the care of the device given to them. Younger students get more excited of having the device in their hand. Older students may feel “empowered” because they now have a laptop or iPad on them every day, not just at home. Although it can be exciting for students of any age, handling and care of the devices are important for two reasons: so students can continue to use them as part of their learning AND so as not to be charged for the wear and tear or breakage that may happened. As a parent, you can help instill responsibility of the devices as students use technology at home.
