About AEAs

Iowa's Area Education Agencies (AEAs) were created in 1974 by the Iowa legislature to ensure equal educational opportunities for all children from birth through age 21. As regional service agencies, AEAs provide special education and school improvement services for students, families, teachers, administrators, and their communities.

Student Personalized Learning System

Iowa schools have the opportunity to create a variety of online, personalized learning opportunities for students, as well as access a statewide catalog of content, assessments, and performance tasks.

The student personalized learning system supports...

  • Student-directed Learning: The student chooses learning outcomes and learning opportunities. The teacher assesses if students have met the outcomes they have chosen.

  • Self-paced Learning: The teachers sets up learning opportunity and assessment. Students work independently and at their own pace.

  • Differentiated Learning: The teacher sets up and manages learning opportunities/assessments. Students complete  learning opportunities that are unique to them.
