July 30 was the final day candidates could file their nominating petitions for the Sept. 8 school board election in Iowa. The two largest schools in the county (Fort Madison & Keokuk) have extremely crowded fields with twice as many candidates as open seats.
The Keokuk School District's administrative team will look much different when students resume classes this fall. In fact, just one of the seven principals and assistant principals within Keokuk's four buildings will return in the same position.
The Keokuk School Board might soon adopt a set of district-wide goals for the upcoming school year. The idea appears to be in response to the fact that the annual goals of Superintendent Tim Hood remain private.
