The mission of Iva Elementary, a rural community school, is to provide all students a solid foundation to succeed to their highest potential by providing a challenging standards-driven instructional program led by an exceptional, caring staff in a safe and positive environment, enhanced by community/school interaction.
Safety is the main concern and the first concern for our students. Many measures of safety have been implemented this year such as:
1. Access controls placed on doors of all schools along with a secondary set of doors on the interior of our main entrance to create a lobby or holding area before guests can access the rest of the school.
2. Security cameras have been added or upgraded at every school in strategic and high traffic areas. We also have video cameras installed on every school bus.
3. Each school has a full-time School Resource Officer (SRO) assigned to them.
Anderson District Three has teamed with the Iva Police Department to place the most qualified and best fit SRO's throughout our district.
