Welcome to the Indianola CSD website! We hope this website will be a useful source of information for you and a showcase of what Indianola has to offer: “Proud Traditions…Unlimited Possibilities.”
Indianola CSD is a high achieving school district with tremendous students, staff, and facilities. The district is committed to ongoing professional development and to providing students the best possible education. Students are encouraged to get involved in the many clubs and extracurricular opportunities that are offered; and we hope that parents and community members will consider serving on committees or advisories, joining booster groups or PTOs, and supporting students’ educational and extracurricular activities. If you would like to learn more about our schools, arrange a tour, or share ideas or suggestions with me, please contact me by email at Art.Sathoff@indianola.k12.ia.us , by phone at 515-961-9500, or in person at 104 East Second Avenue.
I look forward to serving the Indianola Community School District’s students and staff and to being a part of all this great community has to offer. Join me in celebrating Indianola’s proud traditions and exploring its unlimited possibilities.
