New to the District?
Where do I start?
We welcome all students that live within our district to come be a part of the Warrior Way! Norwalk is one of the fastest growing and successful districts in Iowa. Student proficiency often exceeds ninety percent. Norwalk is annually recognized as one of Iowa’s top 25 schools for advanced placement participation.
If your student is brand new to the district, you will need to register them at our District Office, located at 380 Wright Road, with our District Registrar, Becky Anthony. Returning students would be advised to start there as well.
Here is her contact information and also a link to all the current registration information we have available online. We also require a proof of residency to enroll in our district as we are currently closed to open enrollment.
After you begin the enrollment process, Becky will likely send you to the attendance center where your child will be enrolled. There you will meet with the office staff and begin the process of scheduling your student into courses in our system.
If you have questions, please feel free to call 515-981-0676 and ask for Becky.
How can I get involved?
Part of what makes our district successful is an active and involved community of parents. We have several organizations that offer our parents a way to meet other parents and become involved in their student’s activities. Two of the most popular are the Norwalk PTO and the Watchdogs program for dads. We encourage all our new families to contact those organizations to see if there are ways to volunteer and help out.
Please remember that we do ask all our district volunteers to register in our Keep n Track system available here. There are rules and safety precautions in place in all our buildings in accordance with Iowa and Federal laws, so that step is always a good place to start. Some of our buildings also collect volunteer information as part of their registration process, so be sure to ask at the office about how you can help.
Is there assistance available for new students?
Yes, there is. Each of our buildings offer tours for new students, led by other students (to make them feel more at ease on their first few days). Also we have a Student Services department that helps coordinate any other available services a student might need upon arrival in our district. Please feel free to reach out to Eric Neessen if your student has any special needs or if you could use some assistance with finding local programs and resources for your student. Eric works in the same offices as Becky Anthony, and helps to coordinate our outreach and special services with community and other organizations.
