Department of Education Approves CB Schools For Virtual School

As families and students prepare for the 2020-21 school year, the Council Bluffs Community School District is adding an all-virtual option to best serve K-12 students for the fall. The district’s application to be the sixth accredited institution was approved by the Iowa Department of Education in June. The all-virtual option will allow district and non-district families greater flexibility to determine which education setting best meets the needs of their children.  

The Council Bluffs Virtual School, taught by licensed teachers, will provide students with tuition-free access to on-demand instruction utilizing the Council Bluffs Community School District curriculum and the Iowa Academic Standards. Students will have access to a broad range of core subjects, such as Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, as well as elective courses utilizing the district’s Google Classroom course management system, as well as Google meet and Edgenuity.  

Students will follow the Council Bluffs Community School District Academic Calendar and will follow the schedule of their assigned classroom (elementary) or daily schedule as provided by the school counselor (secondary). 

If you are not already a Council Bluffs Community School District resident, you must complete the form no later than July 15th to be eligible for the Council Bluffs Virtual School. All district residents will be able to submit their application for enrollment in mid-July.
