North Fayette Community School District

North Fayette Community School District was a school district headquartered in West Union, Iowa.

The district is located in sections of Fayette County, and served West Union, Fayette, and Hawkeye.[1]



On July 1, 1984, the Fayette School District merged into the North Fayette School District.[2]

The North Fayette district and the Valley Community School District began a grade-sharing arrangement, in which students of one school district attend another district's schools, in fall 2013.[3] The two districts together had one middle school and one high school.[4]

The merger vote for North Fayette and Valley was scheduled for Tuesday February 7, 2017.[4] The North Fayette district residents voted in favor of the merger on a 504–17, or 97% in favor, while the Valley residents voted in favor on a 326-30 basis, or 92% in favor.[5] On July 1, 2018, it merged into the Valley district to form the North Fayette Valley Community School District.[2]



At one point the district had three elementary schools, one each in Fayette, Hawkeye, and West Union, as well as one middle school and one high school.[6]

At a later period the district operated three schools: North Fayette Elementary School in Hawkeye, North Fayette Middle School in Fayette, and North Fayette High School in West Union.[7]
