A Message From MCS Superintendent

A Message From Mason City Schools Superintendent
Posted on 12/02/2019
Dear Mason City Schools Family,
During this week's school board meeting, I made a critical recommendation to the Board of Education to put an operating levy on the March 17, 2020 ballot. The school board unanimously approved the resolution.
It has been 15 years since Mason City Schools voters passed an operating levy.
  • This levy doesn’t add new people or programs. It keeps what we have. 
  • The levy will keep our teachers so that they can continue giving more individualized attention. 
  • The levy protects investments in safety and mental wellness personnel and programs.
  • The levy will preserve existing educational services, programs and opportunities for students.
  • This levy maintains our momentum.
The levy will cost $13.75 per $100,000 of a home’s true value, or $165 a year.

If you are interested in hosting or attending a special edition CommUNITY Conversation about the levy, please email [email protected]

´╗┐The number one reason I am honored and excited to serve as your superintendent is the opportunity to serve people. I am grateful for our dedicated staff, hard-working students, and invested families who have created a school district that is a source of pride for all.
I look forward to continuing to work with you, and ensuring a bright future for our children.
