World Class Schools for Our Students: Welcome Back


It was a pleasure to connect with some of our families during the building open house events prior to the start of the school year. I engaged both students and parents with a simple question: "Are you ready for school to start?" The responses from our students were mixed, while nearly 100% of the parents responded with a resounding YES! The onset of the school year carries with it the promise of fresh beginnings, exciting new undertakings and maybe, hopefully, a little more quiet time for parents.

Throughout my initial months in the district, I have had the privilege of engaging in one-on-one dialogues with a range of individuals, including administrators, directors, staff members, community representatives, and parents. Some of these exchanges were formal in nature, while others were more spontaneous. What resonates as a common thread throughout these discussions is the positive support for our school district. It was exciting for me to hear our administrators and directors talk about how wonderful their staff is. Equally, I enjoyed hearing our staff express their respect for their principals and supervisors. In conversations with parents, I heard multiple individuals affirm, "The teacher my child gets doesn't matter; Norwalk has great teachers." What a tremendous compliment to our teaching staff.  

As someone new to both our school district and community, it has been exciting to engage with individuals who take immense pride in our community and school district. While I am realistic about the challenges we may face during the school year, the foundation of our success rests upon the positive support of our community.

On November 7th, Iowans across the state will head to the polls to elect candidates to their local school boards. School board members are elected to 4-year terms.

The Norwalk Community School District board of directors consists of five members. All directorships are “at-large”, meaning candidates may reside at any location within the school district. A candidate must be at least 18 years of age. The Norwalk board of directors conducts one regular meeting per month and usually holds a second special meeting most months.

Three of the five positions will be up for election in the fall. Members with expiring terms are David Albrecht, Michelle Kelly, and Maribeth Wright. Director Wright has been on the school board since 2013 and has served as board president since 2019. Director Albrecht has served on the school board since 2015. Director Kelly has served on the school board since 2019. Other school board members are Justin Fletcher and Brian Rausch. We are very grateful to all current and past board members for the dedicated service and the skillful leadership they have provided to the school district.
