Community Engagement

Welcome to Ankeny Community Engagement

Connecting the Ankeny community with courses, facilities, and resources.

Ankeny Community Engagement is an extension of the Ankeny Community School District. We strive to meet the needs of the community through community education classes for youth and adults, public rentals of school facilities, and charitable resources in the Ankeny community. The Community Engagement department also approves and manages the distribution of non-district communication within the district, including community information such as the Virtual Backpack, flyers, posters, and yard signs. We are also the contact for donation inquiries for the Ankeny Community School District.
