Mrs. Allensworth, the High School Principal, recently resigned effective the end of the school year. Her leadership at the High School will be missed. The District has been widely advertising the position and is currently screening applicants. A survey was sent to the High School staff, parents of the students in grades 8-12, and other stakeholders to ask for input. It is anticipated that the position will be filled by mid-February. You can participate in the survey here.
The IGNITE Online & Personalized Learning Program is a student-centered model of instruction that allows students to maximize their learning options through flexible scheduling.
Families who homeschool their children interested in dual enrollment can benefit from access to free curriculum and fully licensed content specialists to help support their student's learning needs. Students can select a full academic schedule or a partial schedule tailored to them. They are also able to participate in school activities and extended learning programs.
Some IGNITE students are participating as hybrid students, which allows them to benefit from a combination of online and on-campus learning. The hybrid option opens the door for students to focus on concentrated areas of instruction in the Shenandoah High School's Career Technical Education program and allows room in the day for students to participate in work-based learning, internships, and registered apprenticeships. You can read more about the new housing renovation project here.
This program is available to resident students living in the Shenandoah School District and is also available to non-resident students. Students who do not live in the District must file an open enrollment request to be eligible for the program. These forms are due March 1st for students in first through 12th grade. PK and Kindergarten students may open enroll at any point before the September 1st deadline. Late applications will only be accepted if they meet the "good cause" rule as defined on the form or when a resident District voluntarily allows for the transfer.
The Superintendent of Shenandoah CSD, Dr. Kerri Nelson, and Denise Green were recently interviewed by KMA. You can read more about this and listen to the interview here.
Feel free to reach out to Denise Green, the Remote Learning Coordinator, if you have any questions. She can assist you with the registration process. Contact Denise Green at email@example.com or call 712-246-4727
Welcome to Shenandoah Community School District! The District is proud to offer a comprehensive student-centered program in academics, fine arts, and athletics. In addition to our standard program, the IGNITE program allows for students to attend our schools online or as hybrid learners. This option allows our students to maximize their learning and work-based learning opportunities while attending classes online.
The District serves more than 1100 students in grades PK-12 on a beautiful centralized campus located in Shenandoah, Iowa. In addition to the city of Shenandoah, the District serves students from Farragut, Imogene, and Northboro and students who are open enrolled from other communities outside of the district boundaries.
Many exciting things are happening in our District. We invite you to get involved with our schools and partner with us to provide an exceptional learning environment for all of our students.
