Welcome to the Calamus-Wheatland School District:

The Calamus-Wheatland School District is located in east central Iowa, along Hwy 30, in the counties of Clinton and Scott, comprising of the towns of Calamus, Wheatland, Toronto, and Big Rock. Within a sixty mile radius are five major towns/metropolitan areas.....Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque...thirty miles - Clinton, and the Quad-Cities providing work, culture, and medical services.

The communities of Calamus (400 population) and Wheatland (600 population) completed a total whole-grade sharing agreement in the fall of 1985 making Calamus/Wheatland the first district in the state of Iowa to enter into such an agreement with consolidation following in 1990. Within the two buildings, a PreK-6 attendance center located in Calamus....housing two sections of each grade, and a 7-12 attendance center located in Wheatland, 45 staff members educate approximately 550 students PreK-12. Average elementary class size is 25 students. There are many extra-curricular activities for students to participate in.

The Calamus attendance center was opened in 1920 with a major renovation being done during the years of 1997-1998 . The Wheatland attendance center was opened in 1918 with a major renovation being done during the years of 1997-1998. In the fall of 1995 the district patrons passed a $3.76 million bond referendum by 78% on the first try to renovate both buildings. This bond referendum allows for the elementary center to be all one level with several new classrooms, new offices, new locker rooms, a new media center and a new computer lab. Changes at the secondary center included: a new kitchen/lunchroom, a new science room, a new band/vocal room, new locker rooms, new offices, a new media center, a new computer lab, and a new ICN. Both buildings are handicapped accessible.

The rural communities of Calamus and Wheatland have several churches and civic/service organizations. Calamus was named by S.B. Walker from a nearby "Calamus slough" in which a large quantity of Acorus-calamus (sweet flag) grew when the railroad station was established. Wheatland was named by John L Bennett, from the Pennsylvania home of President James Buchanan. Both towns have community buildings, which are used for a variety of purposes. Among the civic groups in both towns are: American Legion, Lions Clubs, Park Boards, 4-H Clubs, Scouts, and Community Betterment.
