Henry County School District

Henry County Public Schools operate within school districts which are separate entities responsible for administering Public Schools. Henry 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 Henry 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 Henry County school district has significant latitude within these frameworks and the authority to manage the day-to-day operation of Public Schools.

Types of Henry County Public Schools

Henry County Public Schools are largely organized into three groups, each serving different grade levels. Henry County Elementary Schools typically serve students from Pre-K, Kindergarten or Grade 1 through Grade 5 or Grade 6.
