WDMCS Family Quick Guide to Legislation Content

  • We want to provide WDMCS families with an overview of a few legislative decisions made in 2023 that impact public education. This information is intended to inform families of any changes we made as a school district. This communication is not intended to interpret the meaning behind legislation. As with many legislative decisions recently made that impact public school districts for 2023-24, we believe more detailed guidance from the Iowa Department of Education (IDOE) would provide clarity regarding implementation expectations for districts, details in areas of ambiguity, and consistency across the state.

  • House File 604 — Student Behavior and Discipline
