Exira Community School District

Exira Community School District was a school district headquartered in Exira, Iowa. Its schools were Exira Elementary School and Exira Community High School.

In addition to Exira, the district served Brayton.[1]



In the late 1950s or early 1960s the Brayton school consolidated into the Exira district.[1]

In a period of several years before its end in 2014, the Exira district operated in a financial deficit.[1] At one point it entered into a grade sharing arrangement with the Elk Horn–Kimballton Community School District, in which students from one district attended school in another district.[2] On July 1, 2014, it consolidated with the Elk Horn–Kimballton district to form the Exira–Elk Horn–Kimballton Community School District.[3] 628 people voted in favor and 82 voted against.[2]
