Instructional Quality Commission

Information about the Instructional Quality Commission, formerly known as the Curriculum Development & Supplemental Materials Commission.

The Instructional Quality Commission (IQC), formerly called the Curriculum Development and Supplemental Materials Commission, is an advisory body to the California State Board of Education (SBE) on matters related to curriculum, instructional materials, and content standards in accordance with Education Code Section 33530-33540.

Note: Assembly Bill 250 (Chapter 608, Statutes of 2011) was signed on October 8, 2011 and takes effect on January 1, 2012. One significant change is to rename the Curriculum Development and Supplemental Materials Commission (Curriculum Commission) to the Instructional Quality Commission (IQC). Some of the first activities of the IQC will be revising curriculum frameworks and evaluation criteria aligned to the Common Core State Standards with California additions (CCSS) for mathematics and English language arts. The bill requires State Board of Education (SBE) policies to ensure that the English language arts curriculum frameworks for kindergarten through grade twelve (K-12) and instructional materials for kindergarten through grade eight (K-8) include the English language development standards and English language development strategies in the core subjects of mathematics, science, and history-social science. The bill also requires SBE policies to ensure that curriculum frameworks for K-12 and instructional materials for K-8 include strategies to address the needs of pupils with disabilities in the subjects of mathematics, science, history-social science, and English language arts.
