Butler County School District

Butler County Public Schools operate within school districts which are separate entities responsible for administering Public Schools. Butler County school districts are led by boards or commissions who set policy for the district and appoint a Superintendent of Schools. Board and commission members may be elected by voters within the district, or in some cases may be appointed by the legislative body that serves the Butler County district. While the Iowa State impose frameworks and some minimum requirements for length of school year, teacher qualifications, curriculum and other elements of public education, the Butler County school district has significant latitude within these frameworks and the authority to manage the day-to-day operation of Public Schools.

Types of Butler County Public Schools

Butler County Public Schools are largely organized into three groups, each serving different grade levels. Butler County Elementary Schools typically serve students from Pre-K, Kindergarten or Grade 1 through Grade 5 or Grade 6. While all Public School districts begin Primary School by Grade 1, not all offer Kindergarten or Pre-K grades. Butler County Middle Schools cover Grades 6 or 7 through Grade 8. Butler County High Schools covers Grades 9 through 12. In small school districts, all grades may be served in one school. The completion of Grade 12 is generally considered to indicate student readiness for post-secondary education.
