Christine Grant Elementary School Attendance Area Development
*There are two areas that are in flex about whether they would be assigned to Penn or Grant. The school board would love to hear opinions from people who live north of Penn Meadows park and people who live west of Penn St.

The Iowa City Community School District will begin the process of developing the attendance area for the new Christine Grant Elementary School. Grant Elementary will open in the fall of 2019 in North Liberty across from South Slope. The process will begin in January of 2018 and follow the timeline outlined below. This could potentially affect families in the following attendance areas: Garner, Lincoln, Mann, Penn, and Wickham elementary schools. We welcome and encourage community participation in this process.
