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.

Brian Donovan, OPAA Food Service Director, held a contest to celebrate National School Breakfast Week and find the best poster showing a favorite breakfast meal. The contest was opened to all third grade students with the winning student earning a breakfast for their entire class. The students were instructed to draw and color just their favorite breakfast, or how they feel before their favorite breakfast and how they feel after the breakfast. A first place winner has been selected from each school. Winners are Emily Atwell, Lincoln; Keira Fawson, Jefferson and Qiana Scott, McKinley. The grand champion, winning the class breakfast, is Keira Fawson. Congratulations to all of our winners.

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.
