Mark Schneider, Superintendent
Mid-Prairie Community School District

Mr. Schneider earned his bachelors and masters degrees in Elementary Education and holds Superintendent and Evaluator licensure from the State of Iowa.

He completed his student teaching at Mid-Prairie and through the years has served Mid-Prairie as a substitute teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary principal.

His three children have graduated from Mid-Prairie and 3 of his 4 grandchildren are currently attending Mid-Prairie.

He has lived his entire life in northern Washington County and currently lives with my wife, Maureen, on an 80-acre farm north of Wellman where his main mission in life, outside of school responsibilities, is to torment his children by spoiling his grandchildren.
