Register names Central Lee as a top Iowa workplace


DONNELLSON – The Des Moines Register has named the Central Lee Community School District as one of its 2019 Iowa Top Workplaces.

The state’s largest newspaper recognized 135 businesses, organizations and agencies in this year’s list, which is based solely on employee surveys. Central Lee was one of five Iowa public school districts included.

“Recognition as an Iowa Top Workplace is both an incredible honor and a great accomplishment for the school district,” said Mark Hulsebus, president of the CLCSD Board of Education.

“A hallmark of Top Workplace winners is the fact that their employees are actively engaged in the betterment of the team. In the case of Central Lee, this recognition is a clear testament to not only how hard every member of our staff works, but also to how excellent they are in their individual roles and, more importantly, in working as a team.”

CLCSD is a rural public school system known for the wide variety of academic and co-curricular opportunities it delivers to students. The district has about 350 students open enrolling into its schools each year, and many of its staff members are Central Lee graduates. Currently, CLCSD’s leaders—including the superintendent, principals and curriculum director—are all Central Lee graduates.

“Central Lee has always been a great place to work because of our talented staff and incredible students,” said Dr. Andy Crozier, superintendent.


“We have been focused on creating a great culture over the past few years. We discuss our culture, analyze it and set goals to continue to improve it. Our focus on creating a positive culture allows us to create an environment in which students feel welcome and safe. All the credit goes to our staff, who work tirelessly to ensure our students’ success.”
