The results from Iowa Falls and Alden students’ state assessments weren’t what educators would have liked, but district leaders are turning it into an opportunity to increase rigor and grow students’ comprehension.

Each year, the School Improvement Advisory Committee – a group that includes teachers, parents, administrators and school board members from the Iowa Falls and Alden school districts – meets to review test scores and district activity and make recommendations for the districts to better align with their mission, vision and goals. Part of that meeting is spent reviewing results of the most recent state assessments. And while the news at the committee’s November meeting wasn’t all good, Superintendent Tony Neumann said it gives them a place from which to grow.
