Sign up for Parent Teacher Conferences

Please use this link to reserve your time for your child's parent teacher conference:

If you have a driver's license, this info is for you ....

Drivers should NOT get out of your car when you're in the carline. If you need to get out of your car for any reason, then you need to find a designated parking spot.

North Car Line: make sure your car is going the correct direction in each lane. Do not park in the lane closest to the building facing Dubuque Street. This may have you ready to "get out fast", but it is an inconvenience and danger to everyone else.

Interpreters Needed

The Iowa City Community School District is looking to hire interpreters and translators to facilitate communication between families and staff on an occasional basis. There is a great need for French and/or Arabic interpreters and translators, but individuals who have expertise in other languages are also encouraged to apply. Individuals must have proficient oral and/or written skills in English as well as the target language. Please apply online at or contact the school district office at 319-688-1000 with questions.
