I had four children in the Sioux City CSD. All four attended grades K-12. Two of the four received Early childhood/Preschool Services. Overall I found teachers to be dedicated, professional, often expressing and demonstrated a "team approach"with parents. I saw this "partnership" often demonstrated at the middle and high school levels. My greatest concerns came from Elementary Schools. Nepotism and Cronyism was common practice. Teachers with Principal support refused to follow Individual Student Plans. District Administration attitude toward parents concerns were unimportant.
The District of Sioux City Community schools is pretty great! Many nice people working and a good environment. The district helps students with many college resources and their after high-school life. Parent involvement is something this district does have. Many things parents could see students involved in. The activities the district offers are a variety of things. It goes to after school clubs and before school. All ages up to high school.
