Age of Majority – TRANSLATIONS are done!!


The Iowa Department of Education has just posted the Age of Majority documents in multiple languages on the DE Website!  This is multilingualgreat for our families who need to understand these important topics in different languages.  The links include not only the parent and student guides, but also copies of the Power of Attorney (directions and actual form) and a copy of the revocation of Power of Attorney (both directions & actual form).

The Age of Majority materials are now in English, Arabic, Bosnian, Laotian, Serbo- CroatianSpanish, and Vietnamese.   (Hint:  One district gives both the English copy, as well as, the copy in the family’s language to help them learn the words – – via the parent’s request!) Below are the links, which are also found on the DE web site at the top of this page:

Updated Junior/Senior Postsecondary Checklist


The Junior-Senior Checklist – for Postsecondary has recently been updated toJr-Sr Checklist better reflect a “to do” list for students before they head off for additional training after graduating from high school.

If you have copies of the original sheet, please recycle those and use this revised version.   The major change is due to the shift in Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services.

Your high school counselor is also an excellent resource for other postsecondary considerations.
