Grandwood Principal Bekka Maass

Welcome to Grandwood Education Center!  

It is amazing to be part of such a wonderful team with a common passion for helping students with special needs!  Speaking for the entire Grandwood Team, we are excited to welcome students across Iowa to our school!   

Grandwood Education Center utilizes Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to help educate students about appropriate behaviors.  Grandwood has school-wide expectations Hawk Traits: Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Responsible.  Grandwood staff spends a great deal of time teaching behavior expectations to the students and then recognizing when students meet our expectations.  

The goal for students at Grandwood Education Center is to give them the skills and support they need to be as independent as possible.  Grandwood staff focus on a functional curriculum for our students which includes Unique Learning Systems, AbleNet Equals, and Circles.  Students also have many opportunities to develop and experience vocational skills.  Grandwood students make trips on a weekly basis into the community for our Community Learning Experiences (CLE).  These CLEs allow students to work on social skills, adult living skills, and transitions.

Please contact Grandwood Education Center for more information regarding our programming and offerings!
