Welcome to Iola USD 257

The mission of USD 257 is to “inspire all students to succeed”. In USD 257 we believe that education will prepare individuals to contribute to family, vocation, and society. We believe that all students can learn and quality education should be made available to all. We believe students should be continually challenged at their ability level and that higher expectations yield measurably higher results. We believe that students should be treated with respect. We believe education is a process rather than a product.

Attendance Center Transition Plan

Iola USD 257 has developed an attendance center transition plan document that will attempt to answer questions from staff and community members as they are brought up.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact your building principal and they will answer your questions to the best of their ability.  Building principals will edit this document as they answer questions by staff and the community.  Check back periodically to receive new information about the transition to attendance centers.
