Decorah Community School District offers a backpack supply program for families needing assistance with providing the appropriate school supplies for their child’s education. Having the essential tools for the classroom is very important and this program is designed to help with the costs of those supplies. Some items will still need to be purchased by the family from the supply list given by the school. Backpacks with grade-level appropriate school supplies will be provided at no cost. There are no income guidelines. Just fill out the form below and we will contact you when the backpack is ready for pick up.

Please contact us for more information or if you would like to make a donation to the program. We accept monetary donations or item donations.
