Education Savings Accounts - UPDATE!

The State of Iowa selects the Odyssey group to administer and manage the ESA program.

Details about the application process will be provided in the coming weeks, including when it will begin and how families will verify school enrollment and/or income eligibility. 

In the meantime, families interested in the Students First ESA program can find information about eligibility and answers to frequently asked questions on the Iowa Department of Education website.

SCS Dress Code Policy Reminder:  Just a reminder that shorts and skirts must be fingertip length.  If your child wears leggings they must wear a top that covers to fingertip length.  Parents, please check your child’s clothes before sending them to school.  Students have grown taller since they last wore shorts, and they may not be appropriate.  Please keep all of this in mind as you are shopping for new spring clothes, especially shorts and skirts.
