Leading the District Through Services and Programs

A number of the programs, services, and personnel critical to the district are housed within the district’s Administrative Resource Center, located at 6510 NW 62nd Ave. These dedicated and qualified administrators cover a wide range of components that help the school district run smoothly.

Below is a list of our administrators and how to reach them. Please note that it is not the practice of the Johnston Community School District to redact names or email addresses from general correspondence to the school district. Emails sent to employees of the district will be considered public records under the Iowa Open Records Law and subject to disclosure unless it is a protected student or personnel record, or subject to attorney-client privilege.
