Legislative Priorities

Iowa’s Area Education Agencies (AEAs) work collaboratively with local school districts, families and educators to positively impact the lives of over 519,000 Iowa children, birth through age 21. Our organization is advocating for financial support and policies that provide critical needs for Iowa students including student behavior and mental health well-being, access to equal supports through the AEA. We believe a solid foundation in these areas will position Iowa students for a life well-lived.
