Prairie Valley and Southeast Webster Grand are currently in the 8th year of a whole grade sharing agreement. The agreement has been very successful and the two districts will be consolidating at the start of the next school year. The two districts have a certified enrollment of 1,160 students and is extremely stable financially. Class sizes range from 70 to 90. Typically, we have 4 sections for each grade level.
Our school districts are located in central Iowa, south of Fort Dodge. Both districts are within 25 miles of Fort Dodge, 50 minutes from Ames, and just outside of an hour from Des Moines. We have a small school feel, but are close enough to metro areas. The high school is located in Gowrie and houses grades 9-12 and the middle school (grades 5-8) in Burnside . Dayton houses a 3 yr old preschool to 4th grade as well as a daycare facility. There is another PK-4 elementary a few miles north of Farnhamville.
In the past few years, we have had many new employees qualify for loan forgiveness grants. We also offer every one of our employees a retirement pension (IPERS). We also offer full dental, vision, and 3 single health insurance plans (Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield) to choose from. The district offers a strong mentoring program to all new teachers regardless if you are new to the district or new to the profession, as well as support from the administration, the community and a teaching staff with various levels of experience.
