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!

  • School Calendar Update and Enrollment Deadline Reminder

    The Board discussed the District’s upcoming transition to a 100% on-site learning model during a special Board Meeting on February 2, 2021. In order to better prepare for this transition, it was decided that Friday, February 12, 2021, will be a ‘no school’ day for students. Staff will utilize this day to prepare to welcome students back to 100% on-site learning on Monday, February 15, 2021. This includes aligning student services, building staffing plans, equipping buildings with necessary furniture, reviewing new health and safety protocols, and conducting building cleaning. The ‘no school’ day applies to both on-site and online students and will not impact the last day of the school year this June.

  • Learning Model Update (1/29/21)

    On January 29, 2021, a bill was signed by the Governor requiring school districts to provide parents an option to send students to school five days a week. Due to this change in state law, the District will offer a 100% on-site option and a 100% online option (ICCSD PK-12 Online Learning Program). Effective February 15, 2021, the District will no longer offer the hybrid option.
