GWAEA Board meeting

All Agency Meeting Next Wednesday

The agency’s all agency event represents the kickoff to the new school year. The agency event gives staff an opportunity to reconnect with one another and to get an update from the administration of what to expect in the coming year.

This year’s all agency will be unique in that we will feature our own staff as the “keynote speaker.” Last spring’s graduates of the agency’s leadership program, Jenny Fitzpatrick, Mary Lukas, Loretta Mitvalsky and Melanie Reese will reprise what they presented to the administrative team at that event. They will share with staff their learnings and observations about Grant Wood AEA.

In the past, we have asked you to park in the northeast parking lot outside of the auditorium. This year, please park in the lot located south of the building study hall (Click to view map). Take the driveway that goes past the school auditoriums, and park in the lot closest to the Interstate.

The 2010-2011 Area 10 Education Directory is online

A revised copy of the 2010-2011 Area 10 Education Directory is available on the Grant Wood AEA website in PDF format.

This year, only those staff who request a printed copy of the Area 10 Education Directory will receive a copy. Please click here to request a printed copy of the publication.
