Principal's Message

  • Andy Gahan Coralville Central Elementary is a diverse and growing community of inspired learners working together to achieve academic, physical, and social success. Set on a seven-acre campus that includes a sprawling playground and an Iowa tree arboretum, our caring staff is dedicated to providing quality instruction to each of our students.

    Coralville Central is comprised of single grade levels and includes students in preschool through sixth grade. The curriculum lays a strong foundation for building resourceful thinkers who independently and creatively strive to problem solve through risk-taking and critical evaluation. Students are taught building expectations and acknowledged for positive behaviors and social skills through Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). The Guidance curriculum focuses on friendship, empathy, and anti-bullying lessons.

    The Coralville Central Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) hosts interactive family events such as the Ice Cream Social, Fall Supper, author visits, book fairs, and a school-wide carnival. Volunteers assist with Mileage Club, Reading Buddies, and Classroom Helpers.

    Children learn best when provided with opportunities. Safety Patrol, Student Council, foreign language, Chess Club, Art Club, and CASH Homework Club are just a few of the student programs offered at Coralville Central. Our Student and Family Advocate hosts Family Nights throughout the year, and our Before-and-After School Program, Central Cares, provides extended hours for family support.
    Welcome to Coralville Central. This is where you shine!

  • Learning Model Survey

    We continue to evaluate the COVID-19 conditions in our community and specifically within our schools. This includes analyzing our learning models and determining the appropriate model that prioritizes health and safety for our students and staff, while also balancing the educational needs of our students. As we collect data to assist our decision-making process (Johnson County COVID-19 positivity rates, positivity rates within our schools, and guidance from Johnson County Public Health), we would like to hear from you.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/24/20)

    We are looking forward to welcoming our students back into our schools in a hybrid learning model beginning Monday, September 28, 2020. As we shared earlier, we have implemented comprehensive health and safety mitigation techniques to help create a safe learning environment when students return. Expectations reflect guidance and consultation from the CDC, IDPH, and JCPH. One important note, face masks will be required for students and staff while in our schools, on District property, and while riding the bus or in other District vehicles. We will provide a minimum of two cloth face masks for each student; however, students are encouraged to bring their own if they so choose.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/18/20)

    We are regularly monitoring the daily COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County. The rates have continued to drop in our community over the last several days with today’s positivity rate at 8.2%. Due to this, we are excited to announce that the District will transition into a hybrid learning model beginning Monday, September 28, 2020.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/16/20)

    We would like to provide information regarding the process we are using to determine movement between learning models (100% off-site, hybrid, 100% on-site). Much like the decision-making process for inclement weather days, our Board of Directors has authorized the Superintendent to make decisions regarding transitions between learning models. To help guide that decision-making process, we have developed a COVID-19 Decision Matrix which was approved by the Board on September 1, 2020. The matrix was developed in collaboration with Johnson County Public Health and Johnson County Emergency Management. It provides data guidelines to determine if a shift in learning models is required for an individual building or the entire District.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/11/20)

    The District has continued to monitor the COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County. Based on a fourteen-day positivity rate of 20.4% as of Wednesday, September 9, and support from both Johnson County Public Health and our School Board, the District petitioned the State for permission to continue in a 100% off-site learning model for up to an additional two week period. Permission was granted from the State late yesterday.
