It’s been 23 years since voters in the Iowa Falls School District approved a bond referendum for the local schools. But now, as district leaders take a step back to get a full picture of the school buildings’ current state, it’s becoming clear that the way forward may include a new referendum.
Iowa Falls’ school buildings have a long history. Pineview Elementary – formerly West School – and Rock Run – formerly Central School – have welcomed thousands of children through their doors in the 80-some years since they were built. The buildings’ hallways bring back memories of teachers, friends and what it was like to be a kid in Iowa Falls from the 1930s through today.
