The Mason City Community School District Board of Education, at the regular meeting on Monday, April 18, 2016, decided to continue the practice of video recording and posting the Board of Education meetings for our community.

The district has created a Mason City Community School District Board of Education You Tube Channel for posting these meetings.  Click here to access the Mason City Community School District Board of Education channel.

Dear Families and Community:

Knowing where you are and where you want to go is a key part of growth and improvement. Our district regularly uses education data to tell us how our students are progressing and to adjust instruction for better results. 

The state is now providing an additional source of information with the release of the Iowa School Report Card. This web-based tool provides a snapshot of every Iowa public school’s performance on certain educational measures, such as student attendance and proficiency rates on the Iowa Assessments.

The goal of the Iowa School Report Card is to present certain education data that makes it easy for the public to find and understand. The Iowa Department of Education developed this tool in response to a 2013 legislative requirement (House File 215). 

July 1, 2016 - The Mason City Community School District offers career and technical programs in the following areas of study: Business Education, Health Occupations Education, Family and Consumer Sciences Education, and Industrial Education.

It is the policy of the Mason City Community School District not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age (for employment), marital status (for programs), sexual orientation, gender identity and socioeconomic status (for programs) in its educational programs and its employment practices.

There is a grievance procedure for processing complaints of discrimination. If you have questions or a grievance related to this policy, please contact the district's Equity Coordinator:
