Iowa Falls Elementary Architectural Rendering

A preliminary architectural rendering of a proposed Iowa Falls elementary school shows how the building would look from ground level, standing between two parking lots. The existing Iowa Falls-Alden High School is not pictured, but it is to the right of the image above. The building on the left is the proposed new elementary school.

Voters in the Iowa Falls School District have a lot of questions about the $28.5 million school bond vote on March 2. Why replace, not renovate, the two elementary schools? How would the new school affect traffic? And what's going to happen to the Pineview and Rock Run school buildings?

The school board met Monday afternoon to discuss how best to inform the public about the project. The result is a multi-tiered disbursement of information that seeks to reach people wherever they want to receive information, whether that's through a printed flyer, a website, or an in-person forum.

Pineview Elementary School

Pineview Elementary School was built in 1935, and got a new addition in 1999. It is the oldest of the Iowa Falls school buildings.

A preliminary architectural rendering of a proposed Iowa Falls elementary school shows how the building would look from above, looking northwest. The red building in the top right corner is the existing Iowa Falls-Alden High School. The portion of the building on the left side of the image would be classroom space for preschool through fifth grades.
