Support Services

0Central Campus offers a variety of support services to its students including  community schooling, school counseling, academic integration, and special education.

Community School Coordinator

Community School Coordinators work with their school teams to create a comprehensive continuum of internal and external supports to ensure students’ personal and academic success. Community School Coordinators aim to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Foster effective school-community relationships toward improved student outcomes
  • Support transitions in schools with an emphasis on improved student engagement
  • Improve students’ community engagement and social awareness
  • Increase family engagement with schools
  • Expand the community school strategy

To contact  our community school coordinator, please call 515-242-8119


Services provided in the Counseling Center include scheduling, academic advising, personal counseling, assistance with college planning, financial aid guidance, coordination with community resources.

See the scheduling specialist in your building to request a specific program at Central Campus. The contact varies from school to school. In the DMPS district, it will be either a Counselor, or a Scheduling Specialist/Academic Advisor. For our out-of-district schools, it will usually be a counselor.

If you would like to learn more about a program or to schedule a visit, please contact our office at 515-242-7676.

Academic Integration

Academic Integration at Central Campus includes teaching core academic areas of English, Mathematics, and Science as a part of the curriculum in career programs. Students apply academic skills to related projects. If you have questions, check with your instructor or our counseling office to how students earn high school credit for academic courses and which English and Mathematics courses may also earn college credit.

Special Education

At Central Campus, many students with IEPs are enrolled in our Advance Career Programs.

Accommodations for students are made regularly and supported through the special education department. Students who are self-directed, able to ask for help when needed and do not need a great deal of adult intervention in their regular education coursework at home high schools are generally quite successful.

Students who have more extensive levels of need for support are advised to work with their special education support team in exploring Central Campus options to help with determining the best educational fit for them.

Students with IEPs, just like students without, must meet the pre-requisites and entry requirements of the program to which they are applying.
