History edit

Gladbrook Community School District and the Reinbeck Community School District consolidated in 1988 to form Gladbrook–Reinbeck Community School District.[4]

In 2017, there was a proposal to dissolve the Gladbrook–Reinbeck district and have five other districts assume control of portions of the district, but voters turned down the proposal by 69%.[5] The proposal was made in response to the closure of Gladbrook Elementary.[6]

Previously the football team had a rivalry with Grundy Center High School that began circa 1908; circa 2017 the Gladbrook–Reinbeck team was moved to an eight-man division, forcing the rivalry to end.[7]

Operations edit

By 2014, the Gladbrook–Reinbeck, GMG, BCLUW, and North Tama school districts shared a single director of curriculum and innovation; districts may share employees as a way of saving money.[8]

Schools edit

  • Gladbrook–Reinbeck High School

Previously the district had two school sites, one in Reinbeck, and one in Gladbrook; the Gladbrook building had elementary and middle school grades. The Gladbrook school closed in May 2015.[5]

As of 2000 Gladbrook–Reinbeck High School had about 260 students.[9]
