Iowa Safe/Supportive Schools

Iowa Safe

“As part of the Iowa Safe and Supportive Schools grant initiative, Glenwood Community High School surveyed students, staff and parents last spring to learn more about school safety, student engagement and the overall learning environment. Learn more about the results of the survey and the Iowa Safe and Supportive Schools Index by clicking on the link below.

Studies show improving conditions for learning will lead to higher test scores and improved student conduct and attitudes. The Iowa Department of Education was one of 11 states in October 2010 to be awarded nearly $3.5 million in federal funds this year, and nearly $14 million total over the next four years, to support efforts that will measure and improve statewide conditions for learning, which include school safety, student engagement in school, and the overall school environment.
