General Supervision

Iowa’s Area Education Agencies (AEAs) are responsible for providing general supervision of special education in accordance with the requirements of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Iowa Administrative Rules of Special Education (IAC Chapter 41) and Iowa Code Chapter 256B.

The AEA investigates reports of non-compliance and makes recommendations for correcting non-compliance issues. The AEA also oversees special education complaints and requests for due process hearings.
