COUNCIL BLUFFS — The Lewis Central school board will take action today on changes to the school district’s math and science graduation requirements for next year’s freshmen.

The changes would affect the specific courses students will be required to take, not the number of credits required for graduation, school officials said.

The Iowa Core curriculum is the primary reason for the change, said Superintendent Mark Schweer.

“As it presently is, by virtue

of the courses that students are required to take, they would not be exposed to all of the Iowa Core curriculum,” Schweer said.

Schweer said the changes will not affect current Lewis Central High School students.

“The new requirements for graduation would be for 2017, when next year’s freshman class graduates,” he said.

The 6:30 p.m. meeting today will be at the new Educational Resource Center at 4121 Harry Langdon Blvd. in Council Bluffs.
