Why we have an AEA


The Iowa legislature created the AEAs to fulfill three important roles in the schools:

• Equity
• Efficiency
• Excellence

Many of the roles that AEA staff perform, especially in the many rural school districts across Iowa, require less than full-time work by individuals.





The AEAs can hire many of these professionals as full-time employees and provide critical services to multiple schools.

Please share this site with others. When you do, you ensure that Iowa’s AEAs will be there to provide support and leadership for years to come.
