For 40 years, Iowa’s Area Education Agencies have been on the leading edge of service for children with special needs. What started as a vision in 1974 by the Iowa legislature to ensure that every Iowa child had access to a quality education and limitless possibilities has evolved into generations of Iowans who have gone on to reach their highest potential...leading productive, meaningful lives.
Many ask what it is that we really do as an agency. The short answer is that we're in the business of education, but one word can't describe the work that AEA 267 does. We're also in the business of continuous improvement, leadership and support, compassion, innovation, changing lives, and building a brighter future for Iowa's children.
In our ever-changing, increasingly interconnected, technological society, it's becoming increasingly important to re-evaluate the content, methods, and tools implemented in the classroom in order to ensure students are receiving to best possible education to prepare them for the future.
