Parental/Guardian involvement and community support are true assets of the district. Families have made a conscious decision to live in the Gilbert School District and they contribute time, talent, and energetic support to the district through organizations such as the Gilbert Athletic Boosters, Gilbert PTO, the Gilbert Fine Arts Boosters and the Gilbert Education Foundation. The groups are extremely active and provide critical volunteer time and financial support to the district’s various academic and co-curricular programs and activities.

Parent Involvement Title I
Parents/Guardians in the Gilbert Community School District have the right to learn about the following qualifications of their child’s teacher: state licensure requirements for the grade level and content areas taught, the current licensing status of your child’s teacher, and baccalaureate/graduate certification/degree. You may also request the qualifications of an instructional paraprofessional who serves your student in a Title I program or if your school operates a schoolwide Title I program.
Parents/Guardians may request this information from the Office of the Superintendent by calling 515-232-3740 or by sending a letter of request to the Office of the Superintendent, 103 Matthews Dr, Gilbert, IA, 50105.
The Gilbert Community School District ensures that parents will be notified in writing if their child has been assigned, or has been taught by a teacher for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not considered highly qualified.
