Welcome to the Center Point-Urbana Intermediate webpage.  I have been fortunate enough to be part of the Center Point-Urbana School District since 2008.  My wife Tonya (ARNP at Regional Medical Center in Manchester, Iowa) and I moved here with our three children (Payton, Cameron, and Avery) from the Central Lee School District in southern Iowa.  Our two oldest children both graduated from Center Point-Urbana and are pursuing careers in the medical field.  Avery is a high school student at CPU.     

During the time I have been at Center Point-Urbana, there have been many changes in the district.  When the new high school was completed in 2011, the elementary school was split into two buildings.  Third and fourth grade classes were moved to Urbana to join fifth grade to create the intermediate building.  This resulted in the preschool being able to move into the building and form the primary building for PK-2nd grade students.  Having four buildings has been very positive for this growing district.  There have been countless changes within the buildings that make up the Center Point-Urbana School District.      

One thing has remained the same during my time at Center Point-Urbana.  The people in this district are very proud of their school.  There are many more reasons to be proud of this district than I will be able to express in this brief summary.  However, the teachers in this district are dedicated to continuous improvement, keeping Center Point-Urbana among the best in the State of Iowa.  The families who make up the Center Point-Urbana District are extremely involved in their children and the school district.  The people in this district are what make it great and attractive to many people moving into the area.    

Below are my experiences since beginning a career in education in 1992.  Please reach out to me if I can be of any assistance to you or your child.
