Renewal of Teaching Strategies GOLD®

Iowa Code 279.60 requires the use of the GOLD® online system to assess every resident prekindergarten student or 4-year-old student enrolled in a district-sponsored program. Based on these requirements, districts and community partners should renew their existing agreements.

The existing GOLD® online contracts for programs utilizing the Iowa Department of Education’s Umbrella Agreement require annual renewal. Administrators should have received communication from Teaching Strategies regarding renewal. If a subscribing program has not received communication about renewal, contact Teaching Strategies directly (contact details below). Existing subscribers may also complete the online renewal form.

For information about GOLD® renewal, contact Mary Breyfogle at or Teaching Strategies at or 1-866-736-5913.
