Revising Iowa Core C-Plans

In the next couple of days you will most likely be hearing from the Iowa Department of Education whether your Iowa Core Implementation Plans were certified or not. There are a few things we wanted to share with you regarding this:

1.  In the event of your plans being uncertified, there will be an email that comes directly to you from the Iowa Department of Education that outlines your next steps and how to revise your plans and recertify.
2.  As you work through your revisions, you will be able to click on the iLogs icon to get additional assistance, but ultimately, the DE will be looking for all answers to reflect components of the Review Guidance (see link below). We made a similar review available in the spring.
3.  We would recommend that these revisions be done in a timely manner.  Having said that, if your district is up for a DE Site visit, all plans housed on the C-Plan portal need to be properly certified in order to be compliant for the site visit.    
4.  Remember to check out the Iowa Core Blog for all the latest Iowa Core information @
