Welcome to Glenwood Community School District

Proud Past, Successful Present, Growing Future! 

Bond Petition

The Glenwood Board of Education collecting signatures on a Bond Petition.  The bond initiative for our district’s future is a crucial step towards enhancing our facilities and ensuring a better environment for our students and residents alike.

In order to proceed with this initiative, we need your support. The Board of Directors set a goal of 600 signatures. The Board may pass the resolution with fewer signatures; however, they feel it is important that there is strong support for moving forward with the project.  We kindly request all patrons who have pledged their support to the bond to sign the attached petition and submit the completed paperwork to the Central Office by noon on Friday, July 12th.  Please only sign one petition.  Your signature will only count once.  

A signature petition is linked below, which you can download and seek signatures for. The current signature sheets that have been circulating are still fine to sign; the attached signature sheet is identical.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Central Office at 712-527-9034.

Please send or bring your signed petitions to:

Together, we can make a significant difference in securing a brighter future for Glenwood.
