Date Published:
Nov 17, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mark D. Cleve, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Schumacher and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (6 pages)

            This appeal concerns the narrow issue of where the parties’ minor child, E.G., should attend school.  Wendy Alderin wishes for the child to attend school in Illinois where she resides.  The district court determined that E.G. should attend school in Iowa where his father, Tyler Gould, resides.  OPINION HOLDS: While both school districts present strong opportunities to serve E.G.’s best interest, we affirm the court’s decision that E.G. should be enrolled in the Davenport Community School District.
