Clearfield Community School District

Clearfield Community School District was a school district headquartered in Clearfield, Iowa. It operated one school: Clearfield Community School.

In 2014 the district had a total of 27 students.[1]

Due to a declining financial situation, the district leadership attempted to find another school district willing to do a consolidation, but it could not find a willing merger partner.[2] The voters approved a proposal to dissolve the district.[1] Four other school districts absorbed pieces of the Clearfield district:[2] Bedford, Diagonal, Lenox, and Mt Ayr.[3] The dissolution was effective July 1, 2014.[4]
