Welcome to the Urban
Education Network of Iowa

The Urban Education Network of Iowa (UEN) is a consortium of Iowa's eight largest school districts and nine Associate Member districts.  Combined, these seventeen districts enroll nearly forty percent of Iowa's total public school enrollment.

Although the UEN was formed to represent the unique characteristics of Iowa's more urban districts, most UEN initiatives also address issues related to all of Iowa public schools.

Maintaining partnerships is vitally important to the mission of the UEN as well as all Iowa public school districts.  These partnerships include, but are not limited to:  School Administrators of Iowa, Iowa Association of School Boards, Iowa State Education Association, Iowa PTA, and Child and Family Policy Center.  Nationally, the UEN partners with the American Association of School Administrators, National School Boards Association and the Urban Superintendents Association of America.


You are invited to check out the UEN website that includes information of interest, most of which can be accessed by simply clicking on the various links.
