This collection contains documents from the rural school system of Chickasaw County, Iowa dating from 1895-1966. The records cover a majority of the rural schools’ histories, but they are not comprehensive: some records were lost before their transfer to the Center for the History of Rural Iowa Education and Culture.
The collection material is arranged into three series: “County Board of Education, 1895-1961”, “Office of the Superintendent, 1902-1968”, and “District and School Records, 1935-1961”.
Series 1. “County Board of Education, 1895-1961” contains records produced by the County Board of Education. This series consists of County Board of Education Meeting Minutes, Plat Maps, and Atlases.
Series 2. “Office of the Superintendent, 1902-1968” is composed of records created by the Office of the Superintendent. This series consists of Record of Teachers' Certificates, Teacher Applicant Record, and an Iowa School Officers Manual.
