Board Members and Staff, Parents and Community Members, and Students of Collins-Maxwell Schools,


Our school district has requested a Needs Assessment Survey conducted by the Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB).  The survey is designed to help us assess our strengths and areas of needed improvement, with a focus on improved student achievement.  We would like your opinions and judgments in response to the brief survey linked below.  All responses are anonymous.  Just click the link below, or paste it in your browser and follow the instructions.  Thank you for your participation and helping to make improvements for our students. This survey will be open for responses through Monday, October 3.

Are you confused when you see your student’s Iowa Assessments Profile Narrative?  Do you know if your student is proficient or not in reading, math and science?

We have created a narrated slideshow to help answer some of your questions about this state test.  We hope this will answer some of your questions and explain the scores generated from these assessments.  If you have any other questions please feel free to talk with your student’s teacher.
