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.


The USD 257 Technology Department is pleased to announce that we have begun using the Avast Endpoint Protection Suite. Avast has provided this product to the Iola School district for free.

To continue using SOPHOS would have cost the district $12,000.00 over the next three years. Comparable protection such as Symantec would have cost the district $3,289.00 per year.

Avast has requested that we promote Avast Free antivirus to our education community as part of the program
