Welcome to Our Schools
Welcome to the Indianola CSD website! We hope this website will be a useful source of information for you and a showcase of what Indianola has to offer: “Proud Traditions…Unlimited Possibilities.”
I am extremely thankful to have the opportunity to serve as district superintendent. Indianola is a beautiful community, and its public schools offer tremendous educational opportunities. In addition to a very talented and committed staff and strong curriculum, the district facilities are very good and will become even better with the community’s investment of $29 million in the next couple of years. This fall we are excited to be introducing a 1:1 digital learning environment (DLE) at Indianola High School, too.
I encourage you to get involved with the schools – through attending events, volunteering, serving on committees, joining booster groups, etc. Please feel free to stop in to see me, too, and let me know about things that are going well or things that could be improved. My office phone is 515-961-9500 and my email is
I look forward to serving the Indianola Community School District’s students and staff and to being a part of all this great community has to offer. Join me in celebrating Indianola’s proud traditions and exploring its unlimited possibilities.
