Advocate for AEAs

The signing of HF 2612 will forever change Iowa’s Area Education Agency (AEA) system and how it delivers services to the children, families and educators of Iowa. We are deeply grateful to the thousands of advocates who worked tirelessly to educate both the public and legislators about what was at stake in these discussions. So many more Iowans now understand the value we bring to education because of these conversations.

While we feel disappointment with the signing of this legislation, we know that we must shift our collective focus to the next phase of the process which includes crafting a vision for how our services will look going forward. We will work diligently in partnering with our local school districts in that work.
