Public Notice - School In Need of Assistance Designation Notification
Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
In August of 2014, parents of students attending Harding Elementary and Roosevelt Elementary were notified of the schools' designation as a "School in Need of Assistance," or SINA, under federal guidelines due to a portion of our students not reaching proficiency goals on the Iowa Assessments for at least two consecutive years. As a result, our district is required by law to offer the opportunity for supplemental educational services, such as tutoring to eligible students attending those schools. The district is not required to provide transportation to off-site supplemental educational service locations. Transportation to these sites will be the responsibility of the parent.
The Iowa Department of education's list of approved supplemental educational service providers has been emailed to parents of eligible students attending Harding Elementary and Roosevelt Elementary. The list of approved supplemental educational service providers is also available online (click here). Two enrollment periods for supplemental services are offered during the 2014-2015 schoolyear: September 5 - September 26 and October 17 - November 7. If you have questions about whether your student is eligible, or about which service might best meet the needs of your child, contact Harding Elementary (641.42.4406) or Roosevelt Elementary (641.421.4415).

New Website Feature - THE VIRTUAL BACKPACK
The Mason City Community School District is offering a new feature on their website – “The Virtual Backpack.” The school district is a part of the larger community in which it carries out its education mission. The school district has been a conduit for providing information by permitting distribution of non-school materials to inform students and their families of youth-related programs or activities, and of events that intend to improve the health, education or welfare of students according to Board policy.
Mason City Community School district has implemented a “green” approach for distributing information from school sponsored activities and flyers from non-school community organizations to which approval is granted.
