The countdown is on! All of the schools will be back in session on Monday, Aug. 24, and the excitement is building across the District. Throughout this week, our schools have hosted orientations and open house events; teachers have also been focused on pre-service activities. Everyone is ready to welcome students!
Opening day will be an early dismissal for students and will include several special events, including a Grand Opening Celebration and Ribbon Cutting event at the new Johnson STEAM Academy (JSA) Magnet school. Community members are invited to attend.
We’re also welcoming a new Superintendent as the school year begins. Dr. Brad Buck joined the District on July 1 but he is not new to Cedar Rapids. As a student, he attended Truman, Van Buren, Wilson, and Jefferson. Watch below for a special back to school welcome from Dr. Buck.
