Our students come from all over the world! Walking through the halls, you might hear a variety of languages, including English, Chinese, Spanish, French, and Dutch. We believe all our students have the potential to do amazing things in this world. We are committed to providing a learning environment that provides plenty of opportunities for students to learn, create, and shine!

  • Learning Model Update (1/22/21)

    Earlier this week, a bill was introduced in the Iowa Legislature that would require school districts to provide parents an option to send students to school five days a week. In the Iowa City Community School District, this means that the District would offer a five day a week in-person option (100% on-site model) and a 100% online option (ICCSD PK-12 Online Learning Program). The District would no longer offer the current hybrid option. While details still need to be finalized, we would like to provide some initial information for your consideration. Should the legislation be approved and signed by the Governor, families would be provided a multi-day window to decide whether their child(ren) will attend the on-site program or the online program. This choice is open to all families.

For students in grades 1-12, the completed form must be filed with both the resident and receiving district by March 1 of the year preceding the school year for which open enrollment is desired.

  • Message of Thanks

    It is with the utmost appreciation that I write this message. We have come a long way and have covered a significant amount of unchartered territory over the past nine months. We could not have done this alone and, for this, we are incredibly thankful.

  • Learning Model Update for December 14-18, 2020

    As we shared with you earlier this week, we are planning to return to the hybrid learning model beginning Monday, December 14, 2020. Tuesday evening, the School Board indicated that if Johnson County positivity rates remained stable, we would welcome students back on-site for the week of December 14-18, 2020. The Board also instructed that the District submit an online waiver request to the State in case rates began to climb. This afternoon we were informed that the District’s waiver request was granted by the State. However, due to this late notice and the current positivity rates in our community, we will transition back to the hybrid learning model next week.
