  • 'Say Something' Reporting Tool

    The Iowa City Community School District has launched the ‘Say Something’ campaign to provide students, staff, and parents an alternative option for reporting bullying incidents, sexual assault or harassment incidents, and school safety concerns. Reports can be submitted by texting @SaySomething to the number 35134 or using your phone’s camera to read the QR code on the posters on display throughout each school. In addition, the link to use this same system via computer is a bookmark on every Chromebook in the District.

  • Updated Protocol for Early Release Due to Heat

    The Iowa City Community School District has updated the protocol for releasing students early due to heat. We are excited to announce that this year, all of our elementary students will be in air-conditioned learning spaces. This means that there will no longer be a need to release our elementary schools early due to high temperatures as we have occasionally had to do in the past.
