The Idaho State Board of Education and the Idaho Legislature’s Public School Funding Formula Interim Committee are partnering to collect public input from Idahoans on how the state’s public schools are funded. Starting Tuesday, October 4, 2016, an online public opinion survey will be available for any Idaho citizen to provide comments and opinions regarding how public school districts and public charter schools in the state are funded.
College Application Week 2016 will be held Oct. 31st - Nov. 4th, and has expanded! Learn more about how your school can register to participate in College Application Week, and how students benefit.
The Idaho State Board of Education has launched a new online resource, Next Steps Idaho (nextsteps.idaho.gov), aimed at students and parents of students exploring options for life after high school. Next Steps is an important part of the go-on equation for Idaho. It provides a wide range of clear, easy-to-digest information, all in one, easy-to-access place. The information is specific to Idaho and helps counter some of the obstacles Idaho students face when considering postsecondary college and career training.
What is the State Board of Education?
The Idaho State Board of Education (SBOE) is a policy-making body for all public education in Idaho and provides general oversight and governance for public K-20 education. SBOE serves as the Board of Trustees for state-sponsored public four year colleges and universities and the Board of Regents for the University of Idaho.
