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.

Enbridge grant supports crisis management program.
Enbridge's local focus is investing in local organizations that improve lives in communities where the company operates. A generous grant has allowed the district Crisis Management Director to put together 29 "Go Kits" and provide radio communications and weather radios in all schools.
Go Kits are simply a disaster supplies kit comprised with a collection of basic items the classroom or school may need in th event of an emergency. Bags or buckets are filled with first aid items and a variety of survival items. If a class would have to evacuate at a moment's notice, those equiped, would be able to take the essentials with them. We know local officials and relief workers will be at our schools after a disaster. But we also realise, they can not reach everyone immediately and these kits will help us manage until help arrives.
