"Welcome to Keota CSD"
As the new 2023-24 Superintendent of the Keota School District, I welcome you to our website. My name is Lisa Brenneman, and I couldn’t be more excited to return to our District in a leadership position that provides an opportunity for my team (staff and students) to do great things.
I was born and raised in Keota, and have found that I feel most “at-home” in small ag-based communities. My teaching career started in a small school as a 7-12 Social Studies teacher and was followed by high school principal for 9 years in Keota, and then the Iowa City District in a District leadership role for the past 10 years.
My leadership style is focused on creating a positive experience for all that interact in some way, big or small, with our District. Our students and their families are the focus of everything we do, every decision we make and every interaction we have. Our leading District goal will be to establish relationships with all stakeholders based on the mutual respect that we will work to earn on a daily basis.
Transparency, effective communication and a quality caring staff are essential in creating the positive culture ALL students need to succeed.
