Meetings about Attendance Area Development when new elementary opens

Christine Grant Elementary School Attendance Area Development


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.
