Iowa City Community School District Communicates Boundary Changes with GuideK12 SchoolSearch

Tech & Learning Back Office Business Section: SchoolSearch Feature

July 2015 Issue

In February, Iowa City (IA) Community School District announced new elementary boundaries for the 2015-2016 school year. To communicate these changes, the district turned to GuideK12’s SchoolSearch (https://guidek12.com/schoolsearch/), a school locator tool recently launched by GuideK12. Now, by simply entering an address into the site, parents are able to see new school boundaries and their student’s assigned school for the 2015-2016 school year. “SchoolSearch will be invaluable to our parents and the front office staff at each of our sites,” says David Dude, chief information officer. “This tool will make it easy for us to ensure families are registered at the correct school and eliminate many headaches that come with boundary changes. SchoolSearch will also help us detect mistakes or incorrect addresses and ensure we have valid addresses in our system.”
