ICCSD to Acquire ACT Building

Sale of ACT’s Tyler Building will expand school district’s capabilities as part of District’s Facilities Master Plan 2.0

Iowa City, Iowa – June 15, 2022 – An agreement between ACT, Inc. and Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD) has been reached for the sale of a building on the ACT campus. The agreement was approved by the ICCSD Board of Directors on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. The ACT Board of Directors approved the sale on June 7, 2022. 

Purchase of the building is part of ICCSD’s Facilities Master Plan (FMP) 2.0. The ICCSD school board approved the FMP 2.0 timeline in April 2022, which included the purchase of a District Multi-use Facility in summer 2022. Earlier in the spring, the two entities came together to discuss the possibility of how the Tyler building could meet the District’s needs as part of FMP 2.0. ACT and ICCSD worked together to facilitate the property transfer to capitalize on their longstanding relationship and ensure that both entities have the facilities necessary to serve their staff and stakeholders effectively. 

“ACT has a long history of being a good community partner in Iowa City, and this arrangement is one more way for us to remain connected to our community,” said ACT CEO Janet Godwin. “After the pandemic, many of our team members opted to stay connected and work off-campus in remote or hybrid schedules, so we determined that we could consolidate and make better use of the space on our campus. Working with the school district on this property transfer is a win-win-win for ACT, the district, and our community.”

ACT and ICCSD will continue to work together on the transfer of the property and ensure a smooth transition as the district takes occupancy in July. 

“Our District is appreciative of the collaborative relationship we enjoy with ACT,” stated ICCSD Superintendent Matt Degner. “Acquisition of the Tyler Building will allow our District to expand services we currently provide such as the ICCSD Online program and professional learning for our staff. Looking forward, this space will provide opportunities for the District to enhance student learning through expanded career and technical education and other career pathway programs.”
